Dave's Videos #3: The Slit Drum

01-05-2015 02:45 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

View on YouTube This is an older project, but I finally edited the video. [Spektebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] Slit Drum A slit drum is a musical instrument in the percussion family. It is usually made from bamboo or wood in the form of a box with one or more slits in the top. The majority of slit drums have only one slit, but some have two or three slits in the form of the letter “H”. If the tongues have different lengths or thicknesses, the drum will produce two different tones.T...

Current Project #14: George's Cajon

10-20-2014 03:26 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

Yes, another cajon. If I keep this up, I’ll eventually be able to make one without fudging anything. Here it is in glue up. The bits of blue tape are my method of indicating which edges I had to put rabbets in. The tape comes off more easily than sanding pencil marks.

Nubs Sander #1: Stumpy Nubs sander build 2

09-13-2013 03:42 PM by Dogboy | 3 comments »

After my night shift spent a few hours starting the build (after some time hunting the bits and pieces, and finishing a chair). Ok so alignment is essential on this thing, so I decided to use dadoes on the case work. I will finish glue and screws (and some glue blocks) This will help me assure that the walls of the case are parallel. I made the cuts and rough fit the bits. I will play with wiring cut outs later. but for now I am to tired for power tools.

Model Bell 407 helicopter project #4: Sanding and shaping.

02-07-2012 04:51 AM by Ryan Haasen | 2 comments »

In the last while, I have been sanding and shaping the helicopter. I did end up getting the pneumatic sander. It is the perfect tool for the job. I have probably spent 10 hours, but many more are to come. It is ver difficult to get it to the same shape of the real helicopter, it is still more square-ish then I would like it to be. Also just realized that the rear-bottom comes to a point, so a lot of material is yet to be removed. Thanks in advance for your comments.

The back drum had felt well pieces of felt on it so I cleaned up the...

10-23-2010 11:51 PM by OttoH | 4 comments »

After seeing Steve at Woodworking For Mere Mortals, throw together a Slit Drum I have decided to build one as a Christmas present. I have built a prototype / test drum and can now proceed with designing the final drum and building it. Since this is a learning process, I have decided to blog the building of the drum to document what I have learned about it. I did a lot of research on the internet on how to build a slit drum and found that there are three preferred ratios for tongues 3...
