  1. Drumset Birdhouse

    I made this drumset birdhouse for a contest held at our Gwinnett Woodworkers Association meeting last Saturday. I've been wanting to make a stave snare drum, so this was a good opportunity to try that process out on a smaller scale. The bass drum is made up of 8 boards with 22.5 degree bevels...
  2. Dancing Bear with Drum

    I carved this bear wiht a chainsaw and finished with powr grinder and sander. The drum and beating stick was made specifically for this bears paw. He's celebrating the salmon spawn as depicted in the drum head.
  3. Better Dust Collection on Ridgid Sander

    I've used a Ridgid Oscillating Belt & Spindle Sander (4424) for years. I'm actually on my second one now. I have a 4" line from my Oneida dust collection system attached to it. It helps tremendously, but doesn't get all the dust. While vacuuming dust off of it again this week I thought there...
  4. Thickness Sander

    As referring LBJ posts, I came up with this design. My own idea is the self alignment table support system that consists of three bearings. Frame : 2×4 SPF Table : 3 layers of particle board about 390(W) x 700(L) x 60(T) mm Drum : stack of MDF 100 mm dia. While a bolt and a long nut Height...
  5. 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...

    For those of you who may not have followed my previous posts. I am a middle school Music Teacher in Marinette, WI. We are right on the Wisconsin/U.P. border. I am a vocalist by trade, but I teach General Music along with my other Choral duties. In the general music classes I teach a unit on...
  7. Toungue Drum made for Grandaughter

    Made this slit drum for my Grandaughter, just for fun. Top is walnut, base is pine. Finish is about 5 coats of Deft Spray lacquer. Sounds pretty good, and she loves it, so I'm happy. I gotta say, a part of me was grinning about sending a noise making toy to my Step-Daughter's house as...
  8. Walnut stave snare

    20-stave snare made from walnut. I tried to incorporate some of the lighter sapwood to give it a little flair. I should've taken more photos of the build process, but I was too engrossed with making it. I caught the bug though, so you'll definitely see more. I have a couple shells already...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. New Thumb Drums Ready for Christmas!

    My marketing dude said that Toe jam for the name of the drum was not wise we named it the thumb drum. I believe some one from LJs named it the Thumb drum from the contest. I will do the research and see who it was because whoever named it won it! www.Z-Stik.com Please share this on facebook and...
  12. Pine Drum

    This was the first successful drum that I made. It took a few tries to get a jig that would help with the compound angles. Sounds Great!
  13. 2 Purpleheart & Oak Drums (ashiko)

    I got a great deal on some purple heart when I knew nothing about wood. It had some white cracks that went all they way through is some spots. Surprisingly the dense wood doesn't sounds very different from the pine drums. They are heavy and don't have much of a mark on the from a lot of...
  14. Sogo drum 2.0 #1: Finished

    As I posted earlier this a copy of a Sogo drum from Ghana, Africa. The drum is traditionally carved from a trunk, but I used staves instead, 90 to be exact! The top and bottom are Maple and the center ring is Walnut. I used 1/8 inch black pipe tees painted silver for the posts to attach the...
  15. Oak and Ash Drum (Djembe)

    This is known as a djembe. The two cones come together and make a hourglass shape. This was an experiment to see how well it would work. The sound on these types of drums have a different tone with more base compare to the ashiko.
  16. 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...
  17. Walnut Snare Drum Shell

    My wife is a drummer, and her snare had a thin, brass shell. While she liked the attack, it was "ring-y", and she wanted a more solid sound. I thought I would try my hand at a stave snare, and found lots of info online on how to build and calculate cutting the pieces. You woodworkers will...
  18. Hand Drum

    I was going to build a cajon for my son as he is quite an accomplished musician. While searching the web for design ideas I ran across a video of a guy playing an instrument that looked like this so I got to work and built my own version. The heads have a through hole into the body of the drum...
  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...
  20. My version of V-drum sander

    When planning this project, the drum is of course the hardest part. I really didn't want to make a bunch of disks, glue them together and try to true it up. And the kits for the 24" drums were too much money. So, I went looking on ebay. I found this great steel roller covered in hard...
