With 4/4 Mahogany sides, top, and bottom and 1/8” Birch ply tapas this cajón measures 13” wide by 12” deep by 20” high. The snare housing is attached via velcro (for easy removal) to the inside of the front tapa (or head). I only wish you could hear the deep bass and crisp snare sounds produced. Tonal bass sounds are produced by closing off any number of the tone holes with the left hand. The tapas are permanently attached, which I feel makes for a much cleaner sound (no rattle). I finished the cajón with cherry stain and several coats of tung oil.
