These are also known as pot calls. They are like turning a bowl only a bit more involved. When you make these you are building a musical instrument and all of the rules apply. Type of wood, type of sound board, playing surface, the striker used to play it, all are a factor in the sound.
These are all black walnut, 1st is aluminum over glass, 2nd is copper over glass and the last is slate without a sound board. What that means is the playing surface is listed first and the sound board which is mounted under that is listed second. The soundboard is maybe 1/8” below the bottom of the playing surface, they don’t touch.
These are just some quick ones I needed to send to a show but some fancier ones are in the works.
