Will Chappelle Recreating mid-19th Century John Lowell Tugs

Will Chappelle wrote me recently saying that he was interested in the exact dimensions of the original leather ears on my mid-19th century drum pictured in "Drum by John Lowell of Bangor, Maine", this blog, March 5, 2008.

I sent Will one of the original ears to copy. Here's a photo of the original and one of Will's reproductions:

Note that the original has a brass shield stapled to it. My refurbished John Lowell drum is discussed in the above-referenced blog post.
