i made this one in a few days, just couldnt seem to get it done. i used some of the walnut i had saved and some cedar for the box. it is a little smaller than last one i made, and i think it sounds a little better too. also i think the cedar had a much nicer design in the wood. i used some cheap dollar store balls and a small size dowel for the sticks, i think it is 1/4’’, it just felt good in hand and glued good in balls. then i put a coat of poly on it to give it a shiny darker look after i sanded and rounded off corners.

Is there a video that would give me some idea about the sound these make? They look great!
