  1. drums set

    My drums were at a building at which I could only practice 2 times a week. There was a show coming up (3 man drum off) I needed to practice so I designed and built a drumset. At first I was just going to use old heads and just throw it together to have something to hit. Im happy with it's tone...
  2. 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...
  3. Bucket Drum Kit for toddler

    My two year old is obsessed with drums of all kinds, so I figured I'd make him a drum kit that can be used outdoors (won't my neighbors be thrilled!) The frame is made of ~2 foot long western red cedar offcuts with a piece of scrap plywood for the cross piece. There are two five gallon...
  4. Drum monitor speaker from old Logitech speakers

    My son needed a speaker for his small electric drum kit and I didn't want to spend much money so I gave him a cheap set of Logitech computer speakers which worked fine, but there was a mess of wires and it didn't look very hard rock, so I took the electronics out, cut up an old Bon Jovi concert...

    I got such a positive response to my Gen. 1 drums from this community, I decided to share my latest with everybody. All stave drums of various hardwood and exotic composition, with various finishes…

    A few more pics of the "during" stage, will post some pics of my jigs and tools as soon as I can take some more …
  7. 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. Tongue Drums

    These are what I call my economic drums. Me and my boy wanted to do a project together and he is really into music. We tried flutes first and they didn't turn out so well. Thats when I found these, WOW I never even heard of them before. The sounds they make are so beautiful. Since he is 10...
  10. Drum Riser (stage)

    One of my other hobbies is to play bass and lead vocals in a classic rock cover band. Over the years when we look at pictures of the band our drummer Jeff is always hidden from view so I set out to build him a fold up drum riser. The platform itself consists of three pieces of plywood that are...
  11. Drums, or Cajon's (Pronounced Kahone's)

    A couple of years ago, I had some boards that had been drying on a shelf in my shop. They where from a Green Ash tree that the city had cut down in my boulevard. I asked if they could save me a chunk of it. One of my son's is a percussionist, & collector of drums, So I decided to make him some...
  12. Black Walnut African style Djembe

    I salvaged a monstrous walnut log from a 20foot high pile of logs poised to be burned. From the log I carved 3 large drums. This is the one I kept.

    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...
  14. Wood & Lumber
    I was visiting friends over the weekend and was surprised to find out that the husband is a woodworker. He doesn't do a lot of projects but enjoys it a lot. He has all kinds of tools. He made loft beds and bunk beds for his boys, tables for his living room for his wife, built a deck around their...
