My 22 year old daughter asked me if I could make her a tambourine. Being a woodturner I chose to make it as a segmented turning. The top and bottom rings are maple, the center is cherry.

I know that it is probably the image but that looks HUGE! Nice job. I would not have thought about making a tambourine. I have no doubts that she will love it!

LOL, it’s about 10” in diameter. I am NOT a photographer, as you can tell. That’s a skill I need to work on.

That is nice – I thought they had some sort of Drum type skin on them, but I don’t know squat about Tambourines :-) Nice job and should be a great gift for her.

Great idea on the segments, it makes your tambourine very pretty and well crafted. I’m sure your daughter is proud that you made one.

I absolutely love this project. I’m a woodworker, but I don’t have a lathe (and don’t plan to purchase one)...and am dying to find a way to make a tambourine, but without turning…

Ideas are welcome!

Have your say...
