The following pictures and videos show how I make my Drum Hoops.
I start with a sheet of 3mm cross grain of Birch plywood, cut it into 3" wide lengths 8" long
Then I sand the edges to get rid of any splinters
Next I feed the strip of Birch Ply into my drum hoop mold.
Next I pull the hoop tight to the inside of the hoop mold ready for dry clamping.
Then I start to dry clamp using F clamps
Next I remove the first clamp and apply a layer of wood glue.
Carry on removing the F clamps, applying glue and then clamping with the G clamps.
Now I will show you how to finish off the clamping.
The next 5 videos will show how to progress to the finished hoop.
