« Part 6: Getting the Mallets finished and the Frame prepared Part 7 of Tongue Drum Journey series Part 8: Finishing the boxes hark a tune! »

I am not sure if you noticed I had cut one of the boxes incorrectly and had the Buried Treasure holes showing.

So i whacked in big time this morning and got quire a bit done.

Out with the plug cutter first up and fix the goof

I used 10 mm and 13 mm plugs to fix it up

Left it for the glue to dry.

Made the acoustic baffles for the ends.

Cut up all the timber for the tongues, then started on gluing up my tongue
No 1,

I have only got one frame clamp so I will do the other two in the same amount of days.

In fact I may wait and assemble everything and see if it will actually work first.

Bonus tool tip.

Don’t drop your plastic handle clamps on the concrete floor!

Stay tuned Tee Hee !

-- Regards Rob

You’ve gone to cutting individual tongues Rob.
Hope the sound tuning works well!

Has the tongue work anything to do with verbosity due to the goofs?

By the look of the timber, you’d need a sledge hammer rather than your wacker, you wacker.

They don’t have a reliable telephone service in Queensland and smoke signals are banned in summer due to bushfires.
So they have to resort to drum and stick... as long as it’s chicken and not duck!

The whole day was a bit weird overall.
I am not sure what I am actually doing construction wise is the correct sequence and I am having reservations about it actually functioning at all.

Then when I posted the blog it had duplicated duplicated pictures in it and then the whole blog duplicated for some unknown reason.

I had a picture try to show sideways so it just got deleted

But who knows it may work or end up as a fancy door stopper or a floating boat anchor.
Regardless I am going to keep bashing away at it trying not to drop it on my foot or drop another clamp on the floor!

You could always stand on it and do a swallow dive with a pike for another hospital admission.

Why the concern? You’re not gonna break the concrete. Use a beefy clamp if you want even a crack in it.
