Do It Yourself Drum Finish Process

                                    The links below show a finish method using wood dyes and high gloss lacquer.
                                    All parts and shells are from John Riolo at American Music Drum Parts
                                    Since this was my first set I had John drill the lug holes and cut the bearing edges.
                                    The toms are 6ply shells, 8x8, 8x10, 9x12, and 11x14.
                                    The bass drum is an 8ply shell 18x20.
