I made a batch of 5 solid wood box jointed cajon drums (wood box peruan drums).
Maple and walnut
50X30X30 cm / 20” X 12” X 12”
I made a comprehensive video showing all the process, watch here: https://youtu.be/CaK3ZMjnEkU
Box joints made with my screw advanced box joined jig (plans by matthias wandel from woodgears.ca)
I outsourced the finish to a local finisher, and he did the final sanding and the finish (2 coats, 30% gloss).
considering my very small shop and that it is inside my house, that was a life saver for me. and above all that, it was very quick and not expensive.
Photos were taken by Itay Benit at his studio.
-- Only by the 4th time I realized how it was suppose to be done in the first place.
