  1. Bongo Cajons All Wooden Drums

    These bongo cajons measure 16×7 x 7 inches. Sides are 1/2 inch birch ply and top is 1/8 inch ply. Tone of the drums can be controlled by changing the tops thickness, the thinner the wood, the deeper the sound is. Two sound chambers separated with birch ply, small for high notes, large for low...
  2. Bongo Cajon - A Box that is a Drum

    I needed to make a woodworking project for an article in Esperanto and I thought this would be a good idea. My wife always likes getting another rythm instrument for her classroom. He kids tend to 'fight' over the ones that Mr. Rutan made. For the curious, the article won't run for some months...
  3. Drums

    Mann its been forever since I posted. Here are some pics of me most recent drum models. They are in my economy line. The first is my Mini Cajon the beads give it a great snare sound. The second is the one I've been making for many years African Tongue Drum and the third my economy wooden bongo...
  4. Pair of Bongo Cajons

    [Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] My dear wife showed me a picture online of a $40+ box in a catalog and asked if I could make her one or two for her class at school, (she teaches general/choral music K-5.) The catalog called it a 'Bongo Cajon'. It's a cajon that is bongo sized and open on the...
  5. Two more Bongo Cajones

    These are two more bongo cajones I built for my daughter to give as a present to her music teachers. They are made of 'drawer wood', that is wood that I rescued from drawers I found along the curb. It is usually between 1/2 in. and 3/8 in. thick. I have a basic drawing I used to make these...
  6. First Cajon Drums (Awesome Veneer)

    I have heard these cajon (pronounced ku - hone) drums played on a couple occasions. They sound neat when played amongst other acoustic instruments. And hey, it's only a box, so I thought I would give it a try! I followed the measurements and construction techniques of Joe Cruz as outlined by a...
  7. Ho Ho Ho! X-Mas Presents

    Here's some pics of presents I made for family members this year, one big accomplishment was finally finishing an end-grain cutting board that I felt was presentable. Pic 1: 2 bongo cajons a la Steve Ramsey's plans from WWMM a couple months ago. Made with 3/4" plywood and 1/8" mahogany tops...
  8. Bongo Cajon

    A Bongo Cajon from Phenolic Resin Plywood with Birch Plywood Tapa. A very fast and easy project and sounds great :)
  9. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    Hello All! While rumaging around in my wood, I saw a few of these boards. I love the grain pattern on them and I am just wondering what type of wood it is. (sorry, that last picture is not too clear) The wood came from an old bank barn, and it was resawn into 1×8s. Then I planed both...
  10. Blogs
    Latest in the Shop Quick project last weekend: finished hours before the house flooded and my home shop became closed until further notice. I've got the birch sitting around, so Ill probably build two or three more. The diameter on these drums isn't exactly right for its height & I want to...
