Ah yes i probably should've mentioned that.

I took off the silver sparkle wrapping and applied a rosewood stain to the outside and inside, keeping the bearing edges naked.


Classy as.

What did you use to protect the bearing edges? Masking tape? How did you stop the stain from bleeding underneath the tape

I havn't yet been able to find a good way of protecting the bearing edges so i just left them bare and was careful with the stain, which was easy since i did the entire job with a rag. Any bits that got onto the edges i sanded off fairly easily.

That looks really really good!
Did that turn out to be a 14x5.5"? So you cut the bearing edge(s) before the drum got stained? What tools did you use and did it take much time?

Like I said, looks great!!
How does it sound to you?
