Here is a picture of my latest project, I am really proud of this one I made a 98 on it. I made my shop teacher real proud on this one. How I built it use two 2×4’s for the stand and 2×4’s for the feet, I am 3/4’’ plywood for the top, and then I cover the 2×4 stand with 1/4’’ brich plywood, I made my own molding with the help of my teacher. I left it natural.

Very nice! I’m sure the school is proud of you. And an excellent use of common lumber as well…

If that’s your drums, you’ve got it made because woodworking drummers are special people. If not, I can see by your talents you will be whatever you want to be in woodworking. Keep up the good work.
