Speed Bag Blue Idea for a new drum

I've been researching options to replace my drum (made from 3/4 inch pine) with something more substantial. I considered using a piece of butcher block counter top (seems that a rectangular or square piece of wood is much cheaper than a round piece), but everything I found was $100+, even for a 2 ft x 2 ft piece.

I stumbled across this while searching online, which I thought might be of interest to other members:

It's a 24"x24"x1-3/4" hardwood "cutting board" for $55 (plus $20 shipping). It's made from a tropical hardwood called rubberwood, which has a hardness similar to that of maple. Seems like it should do the trick, but we'll see. Hope my wife will be home to hold it up while I attach it!

Hello!
i recently made new drum and used old table for it! They are much easier to find than thick cutting boards and sometimes people give them for free.
You can check my post if you want to see how i made mine

I found the Valor fitness ca-53 on ebay for $230 new to replace my self built one. Its adjustable so i told my wife it was for both of us.....shockingly she was fine with that.

I'll be interested to know how you like the Valor. It was one of the ones I looked at before going with X-Mark.

The valor fitness ca-53 is made very sturdy and platform is 2 inch thick. I put bag of sand on top of it as well, but it doesn't necessarily need it. It adjusts quickly good rebound. I am very happy with it.
