    This should help you visualize the epoxy resin possibilities. This is from the guy who made my drum.

I chose to embed brass threaded inserts so I would not need thru holes on the bottom of my platform. It mounts to the top side only. Very nice.
          Thanks for the heads up on the thread inserts , thanks for the info too , much appreciated

              Bought myself a woodworking router and going to attempt to cut the wooden drums myself to save on paying for it to be done , has any of you guys done it? Any tips ?
              also I've found nearby a guy selling solid oak lengths of timber thinking about cutting to size, gluing together waxing/varnishing and filling in the cracks with colour epoxy resin , any good on this too ?

                Before gluing the oak beams together, be sure that the humidity level of the wood is below 11-12%. I saw people trying to glue humid wood without drying it and the wood and joints started cracking as soon as the wood got more dry.

                  Ah thanks for that, I'll have to invest in a moisture measuring device
