Snare drums in staves of massive wood (diverse essences)

Postby jpg87 » Wed Apr 05, 2017 7:43 am

Hello, this message was initially intended in "rockn" but it also addresses those who are interested in the drum kit (rock n roll!).
I publish it here on the advice of "Mario52".

Attached photos of two snare drums realized by craftsmen by ourselves (my son and I):
- One 14 inches of diameter, 5 deep inches, in maple,
- One 14 inches of diameter, 8 deep inches, in box tree.

The macaroon of our "mark" was drawn with FreeCad version 0.17 and manufactured with a cnc in a piece of box tree.

For information, the version of FreeCad which I use at present:


OS: Windows 10

Next time the whole drum will first be made in FreeCAD? :D

P.S. Nice craftsmanship and always nice to see when two generations are working together on such project.

The moats are created in FreeCad to determine the machining dimensions as a function of the diameter of the drum and the number of staves per drum.
