This was the first successful drum that I made. It took a few tries to get a jig that would help with the compound angles. Sounds Great!

Very nice, making drums is a fun thing. I made a couple of Cajon’s.

Have you got a blog or other info on the jig you used to make the staves for the bodies of your drums.

I did these several years ago so I’ll see if I remember.
Used drumcalc to calc the angle for the number of staves. http://home.acceleration.net/clark/Links/Instruments/Building.Instruments.html
Homemade non-adjustable one of these http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=2076
I used a radial arm saw turned to rip them (a table saw would probably work better) with the correct angle (based on the number of staves you are using).
Run the board through and flip it over so you get the correct angle on both sides of the staves. Keep running the board through until you run out of width of board (helps to get as wide as boards as possible.
Hope that helps!
