Using the pass trough for a 86”x 15” veneer drum wrap

My hubby loves to restore old drums cause he plays them at his church n he has about 15 of them lol. So this time he wanted to do something different on one of his drums so we decided to veneer wrap a 28” drum with some of his church’s deferent pics. The process was as follow: 86” by 16” veneer wrap took 12 deferent pics to fill the whole wrap (That I blended together to make one whole continuous page) than divided them into 10.5x15 so i can engrave in part but trying to keep the next pic. up supper aligned. Use my pass trough. The end results came out nice w a few small mishaps but overall happy with my part. Than on part 2 was to wrap it, stain and he also pass epoxy on the finished product

Really nice job! Using the pass through can be a challenge when the material is not flexible. Imagine how much clearance you would have needed behind the machine if the project had involved plywood. For this reason my machine sometimes has to sit far away from its venting window.

That’s a commitment. How long was all the engraving?

That is so true and a table with wheels would help the process if using a plywood piece.

It took 12 prints each I think was like 45 min each, but I did it in two days also it was nerves racking to make sure that at the end the picks would like line up evenly even if i had side rulers ad you made sure they were at the right measurements.i still had a few that had 1 line overlap but still came out pretty good
