Yep, was that easy! As long as you know your fence is square, it's a breeze!This looks amazing - great job! May I ask how you used the table saw to cut the drum down? Did you push the tom against the fence while rotating it? I have a cheap orphan tom that I want to reduce the depth on.
I had a similar experience.Thanks guys, I know the very mention of this project irritated several members, but I just like a traditional 14X20" for a small kit. I currently own a 15"X20" as well as having had 18" and 20" deep 20's.... but this was just the right size for this kit. It's punchy with less throat and of course much less heavy. Though as I mentioned, just due to the high quality Tama build, it's still a rather bulky and heavy drum!
Yes sir!!! That looks great! So you have seen my 49' Radio King Tribute then... mine was also made from a blank Slingerland solid shell from the Gretsch warehouse as well. Yours look really sharp, nice work!wow... nice...
I did a similar job on a 60's Slingerland RK shell.. found in an old storage building. It was 14,6" wide and was really just a blank with reinforcement rings

So routed it down to 14" and 6,5" depth... an created my own tribute snare. Sounds AWESOME.
Will have to add a tribute label like you did.. although I will never sell it!

Nice work on the cut down. Clean and professional. Did you use a double 45 for the bearing edge or 45 and radius?
