First I would like to credit & thank both VerteramoFurniture7 http://lumberjocks.com/projects/18305 & ShopMonkey http://lumberjocks.com/projects/14525 for the design ideas I “borrowed” from them in making this table. I searched the internet for a drum design but couldn’t find a simpler one for my first “real” inlay. So I again “borrowed” VerteramoFurniture7’s design. Sincere thanks to both gentlemen & I hope I don’t offend anyone by this project post.
The inlay is Zebrawood on a Birch Plywood backing. The legs are 2” hardwood dowels shaped with a R.O.S. & 80 grit sand paper because I don”t have a lathe. Finished with more coats of wipe on poly than I could count, because the ply kept soaking it up. I wanted a glossy finish but settled for a semi gloss. Either way I made this for my son who is a drummer & he loves it.
Thanks again guys & thanks for looking.
