Default Re: Show your wood

I made a stave shell by myself some years ago, and yes, they do expand significantly, especially when they are stored in a humid basement for example.. I ended up with a completely different sound, lol

I put some wax on the inside, it helps a bit and seems to retard the process where the wood is absorbing the moisture.

Stave builder, your snares look great! I am pretty sure they even sound like they look.
