Stain bad. Oh very bad. (well for this thread anyway)
Yes, by all means, remind them. I will too.
NO STAINED DRUMS ON THIS THREAD PLEASE.
Just unstained wood. Oils, varnish and other essential finishes are fine as long as they do not substantially recolor or change the wood.
The goal of this thread is to show wood in as NATURAL CONDITION as possible, allowing for the fact that oiling and varnishing are necessary to preserve the wood (well, most of the time - my drums have no varnish or oil, just clear sealant). The less the wood is changed from its natural appearance, the better.
No artificial colors, flavors or enhancers allowed!
