Default Re: Bucket drum riser, anyone?

Ok, I decided to get off my duff and put the finishing touches to my bucket riser. First of all, I was a little worried about the latches working themselves loose. I found some D-rings at the dollar store for three for a buck. I had to buy two packs since I needed four.

I finally got the skirt done.

Here it is with the Gretsch kit set up.

It raises the kit about 15 1/2".

Special thanks to Deathmetalconga for giving Captain Procrastination a kick in the pants. My daughter told me to post my pictures and a description of how I built it on I might just do that.

p.s. The screws are called sheet metal screws. They work just fine in wood, though.
I started with nothing and still have most of it left.
