My wife belongs to a drum circle group that plays mainly African djembe drums, made from hollowed out logs with a goat skin top. She was given a fir burl and asked if I could make a drum, because of the irregular opening I decided to use 1/4” mahogany plywood, as it would be difficult to stretch a skin on it. I turned the sticks from maple and hot glued horsehide to the ends, so when played in would have a leather against wood sound.
The top is glued on with Tightbond 111 and hot glue. The finish is Sno-Seal boot wax. It sounds very good!
