I did think about Precision. I think Dave Drew does edges as well...and he's driving distance. The shells were only $15 and shipping...but...I'm going to have my twin daughters do artwork on them...(blueshadow's idea)...so I'd like to make them usable....thinking of trying different edges on both (my twins are fraternal...these drums will be too!)

All a bunch of good info here. My .02? Of course a decent router, sharp bit, stable table and serious attention is the way to go, or have it done professionally. If you want to experiment for your own amusement I suggest a thrift store to get some cheap crap drums and a bunch of sandpaper ranging from 60 to maybe 400 or 600 grit. The probably softer wood of the cheap drums is more forgiving and easier to experiment with your shaping and mistakes and will give you lots of insight without risking your good drums. MSD
