So for this instructable, you will need the following:
THREE 1'x1'x3/8" (one square foot by 3/8 inch) pieces of particle board
SIX screws, nuts, and washers
ONE Dremel with vertical cutting bit and drill press stand
ONE sanding block with sand paper
ONE can of polyurethane or equivalent wood sealant
ONE drum head
ONE bottle of wood glue
some sort of padding (I used an old undershirt)
and the following basic items: pencil/pen, compass, protractor, ruler, safety glasses, face mask
Jigsaws cause wood chips to fly everywhere. It's a good idea to wear safety glasses. Also, please wear a mask when sanding. Wood dust in the lungs isn't as bad as fiberglass, but let's keep anything that's not normally part of the air out of our lungs shall we?
Step 1: Taking Measurements
Step 2: Sketch Everything Out
TWO inner rings that will fit within the inside lip of the drum head
ONE outer ring that will fit around the entire drum head
ONE ring with a smaller inner radius than the prior outer ring
ONE round base
Each inner ring can be cut out from the same piece of wood as either of the outer rings.
It's hard to explain all the parts you need to cut out, but just look through the rest of the Instructable and it will make more sense.
Step 3: Cutting Part 1: Making Circles
Step 4: Cutting Part 2: Cutting Rings
I forgot to get a picture of this step, so I will try my best to explain it in words. Start by drilling a hole just inside the circle labeled "outer ring." Widen the hole with the vertical cutting Dremel bit. Finish the rest of the hoop with the jigsaw.
