Construct a lathe mandrel for the forend so that the grooved areas run true when the mandrel is rotated between centers in the lathe. Run the lathe slow and use a sharp grooving tool ground to full width of the grooves. Deepen grooves as needed.

I don’t know if they make a drum with a sanding sleeve small enough but in a drill press a person could rotate the forearm against one, taking light, uniform passes.
