This week, I prepped for this summer’s woodshop classes. The students will be building these benche, mending and designing chairs and constructing Cajon drums. I’ve secured enough lumber for the benches, pulling plywood chair designs from various sources and built this example project. Look to the above link for construction details.

I finished the sides in Miniwax Polyshades. Acrylic paints cover the top and rear. I’ve posted a video of the drum in use over at

-- make it safe & keep the rubber side down.

Cajon drums look interesting, have a couple of budding musicians up the road who might like to make one.
Thanks for sharing.
