If you do not stain this, I encourage you to put it in this thread, which collects photos and stories of natural finish drums: http://drummerworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=73574
Snare still in process but check the final results in Pear Tree and Mahogany wood. This one was made by the same guy.
The Pear tree comes from Lorraine where Metz city (in France) is located.
The Mahogany is an African one.
