Beautiful job. I’ve made several. They are fun, I only wish I knew how to play so it sounds like something.

After seeing one on youtube, I wanted to make one, but not sure what the dimensions should be to get the oerfect sound.. Did you design your own, or use a pattern?

FancyShoes,
I found info on Lumberjocks by GnarlyErik that suggested that you can make them in a variety of sizes, with shallower ones having a higher pitch than deeper ones.
I followed the construction basics from a Wood magazine plan.
I copied the top from a photo I found on a commercial maker’s site, and sized it from a plan I found elsewhere on the web.
The overall dimensions are 461mm long, 171mm high and 263mm wide.
The top is 21mm thick and the sides & ends are 19mm thick. The inset bottom is 15mm ply.
The ends are each reinforced with another 19mm piece glued to the ends, 135mm H x 225mm W.
The bottom screws to these ends plus strips glued to the sides.
You need a removable base if you are going to tune it after assembly. (I haven’t done that yet)

There is now a video at http://www.woodworkforums.com/f40/tongue-drum-207527#post1970907
Couldn’t figure how to do it on Lumberjocks.

Have your say...
