Hey, Everybody.
Still learning, but I thought I'd share a project. This is the second tongue drum/tone box I've built. Sides are 4/4 birdseye and top is Padauk, all joined with 1/2"x 1/2" rabbets and yellow glue. Half-inch birch is screwed onto the bottom to give access to tune tongues. I finished it with cutting board oil, which makes the Padauk warm and glorious to behold. The negative space is an "H" for the owner (gift to my sister and family). I planned to have 6 notes on a pentatonic scale, but it didn't work out as planned. I was able to tune the tongues to get descent and different tones though. This was the first time I used Sketchup. Probably more proud of that than the actual finished piece. Here's an export from Sketchup with dimensions and a pic.

Enjoy,
Jeff
