Default Im making a drum. HELP

hi guys,

im making a drum for a school project. Ive got the wood and bent it into a nice round shell.
What tools should I use/need to cut the bearing edge, drill the holes for the hardware and how do I get the lugs into the perfect position?

Scribe and rasp/sand paper if you can't use a router or router table with 45degree chamfering bit (for the bearing edges) and just drill the lug holes.

Make a jig with the hole spacing set correctly out of a wood scrap and clamp it to the shell so you can pass the bit through it and then the shell in the same fashion for each set of holes ensuring that they are all in the same place w reference to the bearing edges.
