  1. Cajon #1 is special

    Easily the one thing I've made more times than anything else is cajons. I've just never posted them here. When I started woodworking, it was because I wanted to make musical instruments. Then I fell down the rabbit hole of everything else you could make with wood (SOOOOO MUCH!) and the only...
  2. Cajon

    A Cajon I built from Phenolic Resin Plywood with a Birch Plywood Tapa.
  3. 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...
  4. Paduak Cajon

    We've had a recent addition of a friend new to woodworking but willing to learn who has decided to spend some time around the shop. I've been teaching him the basic techniques required to dress lumber, glue up boards, use a router and sanding techniques. All of which were used on this project he...
  5. A Cajon on Commission

    I was asked to make a cajon for someone. They liked my price and I duid the deed. My cajons are made from a quarter sheet of 1/2 in. plywood, using just about every scrap of the wood. The tympan panel is made from thinner plywood, ideally 1/8 inch or there abouts. For this one i had a...

The second is the one I've been making for many years African Tongue Drum and the third my economy wooden bongo...
  9. Third Cajon

    [Legebla ankaŭ in Esperanto] This is the third cajon I've built so far. A friend of mine from church plays guitar and sings in a local band. He saw my wife's cajon and asked if I could make one for him. The drummer in the band does not like dragging his drum set around to the gigs. Since a...
  10. First Cajon by Request

    My wife wants me to make a cajon drum for a musician friend who is graduating high school this year. Because I haven't made one before, she requested that I cut my teeth by making one for her first. (I suspect ulterior motives.) I made this cajon from 1/2 inch birch plywood for the shell, and...

    Hey everyone, Sorry it has been so long since I have posted. I am just coming out of the fog of business. I have been building Z-stiks and now lap cajons. This is a custom drum for Walter Rodriguez who is a world renowned percussionist. Steve Wonder has a Z-stik in is studio right now recording...
  12. 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...

  14. Fixture for Brush Finishing Cajons

    The bottom of the box is finished first, two coats. When that's dry, two boxes are mounted on the 12" square plates on the ends of the spindle. Four washer head screws do the job nicely. These cajons are 14" square and 18"' high. The lamp is designed to shine horizontal light on the surface...
  15. Cajon - well everyone else is doing it so why not.

    There have been a few of thes posted on here in the last few weeks and I was looking for an idea for a 21st present for a family friend. So here it is - a box drum. All made from scraps of 18mm ply from a skip except for the front bit for which I bought a half sheet of 3mm. I was a bit...
  16. Cajon (or Cajones?)

    I have not posted a project in quite a while. Life has been very busy and most of my shop time has been limited. I'm slowly revising the shop, so project time has been limited. I actually started this project last Christmas. My wife is a musician (drums, keyboards, bass guitar), but we don't...
  17. Cajon

    After seeing a cajon drum at church and the local Guitar Center, I set out to see if I could make one for my son, the drummer. I found several sites that were very helpful but I ended up making my own plans based on fundamentals found at these sites. The box is made of 1/2" birch plywood and the...
  18. Round Cajon

    I was chatting with a fellow at work, and discovered that he is also a musician, albeit more serious than I am, and he learned that I am a woodworker, also more serious than most people, and the conversation turned to cajones, (A drum made entirely of wood - originally from Peru, according to...
  19. El Cajon

    Santa will have to stretch his toy bag to squeeze this in. I used baltic birch plywood for this. 1/2" top and sides, 1/4" for the back and 1/8" for the front. The joinery is a dado/rabbit joint cut on the router table. The front and back are held on with brass screws. This is an easy joint...
