    That's better than the standard 61 cm sold here. Birch is a nice looking wood and so is oak, either is a good choice.

It also doesn't really matter whether it is round or square - but square has edges that you might hurt yourself on worse (if the platform was low and someone walked into it - don't laugh - it happens).

      From an aesthetics standpoint, oak would probably look nice.
      Exactly Right. I have found the "sturdiness" of the board, the better it is, regardless of material. Of course a "heavier board" (thicker) may be more sturdy with less rattle.

        That will accommodate 10 inch long bags with any swivel 70 cm is 27.5 inches Most of us are using 24 in. drums
        Unless you find yourself liking really big bags you should be in great shape

        Cabinet or marine grade plywood can make a nice drum Inexpensive and easy if you laminate and finish it properly
        Most things made out hardwood that are large like table tops are made out of pieces cut to length and prepped with
        planer and joiner machines and glued edge to edge to make the width A lot of people don't have this kind wood
        working equipment and or the experience with materials involved Luckily most of us have resources talk to your buddies
        in the trades The resources you have may help you decide on materials to use You won't have to look very hard on
        This forum to find sturdy and simple platform designs especially made out wood

          I found a massive oak table top about 2 2,25 inch thick.
          This seems perfect. But is a edge to edge platform usable?

          Thanks guys.

            Sounds like you will have very nice drum A tombstone shaped drum is very practical for a fixed height
            platform The one at my shop is supported at the wall with heavy gauge steel angle and uses a strut to
            support the rounded end It is very stout and very stiff and so simple I don't see any reason you couldn't
            build it in a corner and make it half round so you won't have any protruding corners As far the support
            being "edge to edge" on a round drum you would want to make it a bit narrower for better weight distribution
            If you use a tombstone design it won't matter I'm not the only one using a set up that doesn't have a round
            drum I think it was Cazbag who made or found something like a table top and mounted it in his workout area
            with multiple swivels
