Rack Tom: Part One

My first shell came in the mail from almost a week ago. My girlfriend Sarah and I promptly covered the inside and got to staining the wood.

We taped up the bearing edges as to keep the stain on the outside of the shell. We did two coats of Minwax "Dark Walnut" stain.

After that had dried, I did four coats of tung oil over the span of three days and finally rubbed it out today for a more satin look.

The hardware should be arriving in the next week, so I'll keep you posted.
