On March 3rd and 4th of 2001, I took a drum building workshop with Stan Secrest of Build-a-Drum Workshops. Several members
of my drumming circle had taken Stan's workshop a year earlier and they all came away feeling good about having built some
"A new drum??" I thought to myself, "One never has enough drums!"
Hey, I finally put a pic of me on my webpage. At least one of these guys may be me... ;-)
Here are about half of the participants with their almost-finished drums. It was amazing to see the wide range of designs
that came out of the workshop. It felt great being around so much creativity. Some people suspended stones from wires hidden
inside their drum...some wrote messages that would only be seen when the drum got reheaded. People put lots of thought and
caring into their drums.
