    Hi,<br>the boards are cutted and planed.<br><br><img src="http://up.picr.de/13644280ou.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://up.picr.de/13644281lz.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br>Cutted them into trapezoid staves.<br><br><img src="http://up.picr.de/13644277ii.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://up.picr.de/13644279sx.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>They were glued together like a cask is made. (casks are not glued)<br><br><img src="http://up.picr.de/13644282os.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Looks good so far. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28"><br>On two joints there is no glue, so that I can cut both halfcircles on the bandsaw.<br>So I will get a 14" and a 12" snaredrum. <br><br><img src="http://up.picr.de/13644283fk.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://up.picr.de/13644278bw.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    Very nice to see, you knows how to work with wood... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28"><br><br>but you know, that this snaredrum is going to be very heavy... of course you know it, you've glued the pieces together... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"><br><br>now you made me curious about what comes next, that is not fair <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_scratch.png" alt="scratch" longdesc="33">
