Bubinga Hoops, Padauk Shell. Enjoy!
I am astounded at your craftsmanship. Would you mind sharing a little on your technique? The shell is a tongue and groove, is it put together as sectioned octagon and then put on a lathe to turn it round?
I have asked questions of drum builders before and never get answers, I find it odd, even if they shared their build secrets, it still takes equipment and great knowledge and experience to still pull it off, so not sure what the big deal is.
Anyhow, amazing work.
