The pictures.
1) The original drum.
2) After the burn out (had to do this twice, once with a weed burner and a second time with some hardwood firewood I had from a camping trip)
3) After the wire wheel.
4 & 5) Rubbed with peanut oil and ready for seasoning.
6) The finished drum.
7) The proud father of his first drum!

She is holding steady at 310 for seasoning. Probably let her go a few hours. I want to thank everyone on this forum for all their input and help. I have no doubt this is not going to be my only UDS, just my first!
I saw the colors and thought, Where's the "I"? Then I saw where your'e from and realized how accurate my thought was. You need a decal of The Chief!!

There's a good source on drums down here in Mattoon for $10 each if you're in search for more.
