I was going to build a cajon for my son as he is quite an accomplished musician. While searching the web for design ideas I ran across a video of a guy playing an instrument that looked like this so I got to work and built my own version. The heads have a through hole into the body of the drum which projects sound nicely outward.
Baltic birch body, black walnut ‘skins’ finished with several coats of shellac then a couple of coats of polyurethane. I will wax it to a buttery smooth finish before I give it to him.
Thanks for looking.
