I just finished this drum for my niece. I got the plans from an old Wood magazine. My niece loves it.

Very cool looking gadget!

Doesn’t your tongue get tired when you play it? :-)

is the sound produced random, or were they cut to get a desired effect? Nice construction. What woods are those?

Im curious, I made one, and the sounds are ok…but how deep is your top? I did mine 1 inch, I think it may be too thick. I havent sealed the bottom yet, so that may be making a difference as well. I did the sides 3/4 with a rabbet for the top. I am going to just butt join the bottom in side the walls.

Hello everyone…I’ve got a plan for tongue drum. I got this one from one of Michael Thiele’s Drums competitors. This is one of america’s best tongue drums. What I posted is the dimensions yet. The top tongue design will follow soon. I have the secrets here in detail how it will sound good. Just follow everything. Again, the top tongue design will follow soon. Thanks for your patience. God bless you all!
