I’m thinking of building a solid wood (stave) snare drum for my son and need some recommendations for a lathe. The drum would be 14″ o.d. by 8″ tall and a 1/2″ thick shell. The inside needs to be just as smooth as the outside for good resonance. I also want to learn to turn bowls.
Any recommendations for a lathe?
Any recommendations for mounting the rough shell to a face plate? And for tooling set up for the inside of the shell.
