  1. 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...
  2. Gray Oak Burl Bowl

    My buddy and I are helping uncle Dick liquidate his decades long collection of burls, turning slabs and lathe and lathe tools. Uncle Dick can't work at the lathe any more so we are helping him out by cataloging the tools and the wood (pictures, dimensions, weights of all 300 plus pieces of burl...
  3. Glue roller

    Because I edge glue a lot of material I decided I need something better for glue application. I started with a small bread pan I absconded from my wife that is a Baker. I then turned a piece of maple the width of the pan less shims for bringing the sides parallel. The drum needs to be turned to...
  4. Huge Drum

    Been forever since I posted I'll try to catch you all up on what i've been doing. So I was doing a craft show fiddle festival last year and this guy sees my drums and asks me if I can make him this. If any of you do shows you know that 90% of the folks are always asking if you can make...
  5. Tongue Drum

    This is the first Christmas present of the year made as a joint gift for my 2 sons (4 and 6 years old). The sides are made from cherry and the top is walnut. After getting it all glued up I was disappointed in the dull sound of it until I picked it up and found that the sound was deadened by the...
  6. 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...
  7. A lovely new djembe made from laminated quilted maple and black walnut inner core for a tonewood.

    I my little shop a good amount of wood gets cut into laminating strips to solidify its future as a beautiful drum. The curse of many a woodworker is to save the perfect wood for the perfect project, and too often we tend to hoard wood in case of that ''perfect'' project…..sometimes for decades I...
  8. Homemade 18" Drum Sander

    Here is my homemade 18 inch drum sander. I have spent about 10 months working on this project. I have had a number of problems, with things not fitting right, ordering the wrong parts, not knowing what to order, so I am going to try to clear up some of the questions anyone might have. The Frame...
  9. 2011 Djembe with Polished Stainless Hardware

    I have two methods for Djembe construction. One is made from three laminated-stave sections.(like the 2011 black walnut project) This one (and the Quilted maple project) are my ''D'' series drums which are made from 16 laminated forms, that are bevelled to fit together. The outer layer here...
  10. V-drum Sander

    V-Drum Sander I received some recycled wood from my father in law …these were pre casting forms from Caterpillar Tractor Co. _ I disassembled a couple of sets then went about finding a project for them. Somewhere along the way I saw a need for a home made sander, after lots of web research I...
  11. Tongue drum

    Hi there, been lurking around LJs for awhile now. This site has been a great resource for knowledge and inspiration. Thought it was time to post one of my first projects. I made a tongue drum for my 2 year old son as an Easter gift. Top is 3/4" purple heart with 1/2" cherry sides. Dimensions...
  12. Tongue Drum Table

    Made this table/drum for my girlfriends birthday. The table part was inspired by the Wood Whisper and the Tongue Drum inspiration by Michael Thiele. The drum and panels are Paduak, table is of Leopardwood with Ebony accent plugs. Fun project to make while being sheltered in place. Steve
  13. Tongue Drum

    First try at a Tongue Drum, not tuned, made for little fingers. Box sides and bottom are spruce, top and handles from sawmill cherry. It resonates OK, still looking for the rubber balls for the sticks.

    Stunning…I think he did my drums justice! A great photographer makes all the difference in the world!
  15. Stave Snare Drums

    These are some drums I've made over the years while moving from house to house across many states. I finally finished building my new house with large workshop and I'm so excited to get back to building drums! Unfortunately, all of my custom MDF jigs absorbed all the moisture from various...
  16. Tongue Drum - Walnut and Cherry

    My brother and his family visited for Thanksgiving, and my 2.5 yo nephew was enthralled by the pair of tongue drums that I built several years ago. So, decided to make him one for Christmas. Had to work quickly-besides the holiday deadline, there are only so many days this time of year when...

  19. 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...
  20. Map Frame...aka the results are in on the mitersled

    My daughter asked me to make her a frame for a map she had recently bought for her (mumble grumble) future husband. Well having recently built a mitersled, I decided this would be a good opportunity to give it a proper road test. Had some short pieces of rough oak 1×8's… so it was off to planer...
