this is a stump of another tree.16” diameter and i plan on hollowing out the center and forming a shell for a snare drum. a SOLID BURL snare drum. i haven’t been able to find one on the entire internet. if you know of one post it up. id love to get a couple pointers about the process. i’ll be using routers, band saw, and many jigs.

chizzled off the bark to speed up the drying process. being i only intend on using the outer burled part at first.

Wow. These are going to be ambitious projects. I could not imagine trying to work with 5’ burl. I will be looking forward to seeing the progress on these.

Thanks for the post.
