Before it was dry, someone took it from me and started playing it pretty hard with a drumstick, and I think that is the main reason it stretched out.
It's cool you made your own drum out of something you hunted and a log you worked and you did the project with your dad. You should put up photos of the drum so we can see it - I don't think anyone has every posted anything like that around here.
