    Original! Really liked the way you made the kick drum.

    Never seen this before. Way to take a spin on an idea. Glad that thing

    projects are always quite interesting and inspiring. A huge thumbs up from

    Personally I would have had the cymbals hang by chains. Queensryche style.

    Great project!

  9. Wooden Tool Man

    Umm Blue Birds instead of Sparrows……should I take that as a direct slap
    in the face?…LOL
