My wife wants me to make a cajon drum for a musician friend who is graduating high school this year. Because I haven’t made one before, she requested that I cut my teeth by making one for her first. (I suspect ulterior motives.) I made this cajon from 1/2 inch birch plywood for the shell, and 1/8 inch oak doorskin for the head. It’s about 12 inch square by 19 inches tall and has a snare in the upper part (non adjustable.) It was a fun build, involving a lot of router work for the joining and cutting the circle. I finished it with several coats of polyurethane. I think I passed the test and will be allowed to build the next one.
