Re: Bucket drum riser, anyone?
Whoa, I thought this was going to be something ghetto and it's actually very well planned and executed. Relatively portable and lightweight. I agree, a skirt would be good. I'd suggest going to a seamstress and taking them your cloth and a strip of scratchy velcro. They can join it and sew the velcro, which looks like it would hold perfect to the carpet. How much money have you spent on it so far?
Show us the finished product with the skirt and I bet it will look very professional. Great work so far.
