    That is some beautiful stock, WOW! It sounds like you have this under great control (would like to see a picture of your router sled) sound cool. Please do not over sand the bonding edges some of those "natural cracks" will help to strengthen that bond. This is an awesome personal journey. Thank YOU for sharing all of this with us.

      Thanks, I've now got the stock cut into a circle using the router, next step is to drill the mounting holes then apply a coat of either oil or lacquer....also frame is now powder coated and looks awesome, can't wait to show you all the finished platform

          Great job man, love the frame looks really solid and the powder coat looks great. That drum is really coming along, can't wait to see the end results. But I have to say be a wood worker for the majority of my life, I love the simplicity of your router sled. Wonderful Please keep us posted.
