Current Project #17: Cajon. Installation of the snare

10-24-2014 03:11 PM by Dave Rutan | 8 comments »

Since this cajon is all but finished, I thought I’d post something about the snare element that goes into the box. I came up with this myself, but my wife says it’s nearly identical to the professionally made cajones she’s seen. I guess I just got lucky. Without the snare, a cajone will sound basically like a base drum—boring. The snare gives it some dynamic and pizazz. The snare has to be attached to something and adjusted once installed. My cajones ha...

Current Project #16: George's Cajon

10-20-2014 03:26 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

Yes, another cajon. If I keep this up, I’ll eventually be able to make one without fudging anything. Here it is in glue up. The bits of blue tape are my method of indicating which edges I had to put rabbets in. The tape comes off more easily than sanding pencil marks.

It's Pouring a Little

08-04-2014 02:02 AM by Dave Rutan | 7 comments »

Usually I do projects according to my whim. At the moment I’m finishing a non-woodworking house project, but I now have two pending projects on the bench, three if you count the one I need to do before the summer weather ends. My daughter has asked me to design and build a ‘notebook holder’, two actually, so she can keep them handy at her bedside. Then at church, the gift cajon that I made came by during second service. Now I have an ORDER to make one for another congregat...

3 friends of mine dropped by and have a little jam session on a few cajon drums i’ve been working on. Reid is a member of Watasun please check out there face book. The Cajon drums are either built from solid wood or baltic birch. These are called a string cajon which has strings on one of the playing faces to add a snare effect.

Cajon drum, for my son the drummer boy

11-05-2010 04:55 PM by PaBull | 19 comments »

This is for my son. He was adopted at age 19, came home the year before that. He is the bio-sister of one of our daughters. He had 2nd grade education when he came home. In the morning he works for me at the nursery and in the afternoon and evening my wife home-schools him to get his high-school diploma. It is a tough road for a special needs child to do this at later age. We love him a lot. He will be turning 21 this month. So for his birthday I was thinking about making him a drum. A Caj...
