    "... with the wife getting pregnant...." maybe you were there ? Maybe?

    Bloody awesome project. The drums look great. When are you selling a set?

    Just something I thought I'd have a play with, the idea of making a set appealed to me and had some time so gave it a go, pretty handy projects to progress on a rainy day

    Some was local some was from the states, my mate drives a Cnc machine too so may even have a play with making lugs (using some fired cases might be a bit of fun)

    God I'm envious of some of the skill level and creative displays you guys put on.

    What's the guitar in the background?

    That's my late fathers Les Paul, inherited a Fender Strat from him too (he was the guitarist and needed a drummer hence me learning the drums.... he also needed a hammer hand hence me developing the skills to do theses things lol)

    I'm making a new lathe at the moment to handle bass and floor tom sized drums better, will likely run it really slow and stick with the router on a slide type setup so I don't have to spin it fast while off balance and risk blow ups (will run it faster for sanding etc once roughed out, balanced and turning true. I just need a rainy day when I'm not working to weld up the base
