It’s a cajon, a type of drum that makes more than just one sound. All made with plywood.

Sweet video Steve! I was following along on your shorter ones and hoped I would finally hear this thing in action.

Really nice finish as well – you done good! ;-)

Hola,
Many thanks… my friend …a Spainard who is a great artist and also a musician, mention that we should make a “Flamenco Box”—i.e., a Cajon just 2 days ago. Your good video tutorial is timely!

We will give it a try….
Thanks again,

Terry

Very good, Steve!

I’m sure glad you clarified Cajon / Cajones and Cojon / Cojones … Come in pairs! LOL

Very good tutorial on your project!

I never really knew what a Cajon was… except, just a short few miles away from us, we have Cajon Pass… going over the hill from San Bernardino (Devore) to Victorville… eventually to Las Vegas.

Cajon Pass... Does that mean it’s some kind of Drum Pass?

Thank you for putting it together… you really know how to put those videos together!

Hey Joe, you’re right! I haven’t thought about Cajon Pass in years. Hmm…now I’m trying to remember if there is anything boxy about it.

“Cajon Pass”? That’s just nutty. Nice video Steve.

There Really Is a Cajon Pass

The Summit is at the Junction… on top of the mountain ridge…

Hesperia, Apple Valley, & Victorville are to the North…

Devore & San Bernardino are to the South.

Another great project Steve. I like the added Mere Minutes on other aspects of the project. That could be a great format going forward for those larger projects that might need more than your 10 minute goal.

Nothing like waiting until the last minute. Found your video yesterday (December 23rd at 4PM). Here it is at 11PM on Christmas Eve and I just finished one for my son. He is going to love it.

Thanks for posting. Merry Christmas.
