This is a Hard Maple and Cherry Tongue Drum I made for my Daughter’s Birthday. I hand cut the dovetails and chiseled out the wasted. The Cherry and Maple provide good resonance.

Very nice. I want to try one some day-and this looks like a good choice-although I would probably want a few more notes. It should be just right for a child however.

you can tune the notes by removing material from the back side of the fingers. For a 3 year old that was plenty of notes.

Great job, I did some painted ones and I’m almost finished with another that I plan to hook up to a mic. These are so much fun. You should try these too it gives it a completely different sound.
Thanks for sharing it really looks good

Very nice and I like the wood choices. I’ll have to say though, of the ones I’ve made, I have gotten the best sound when I used purpleheart on the top. I’m now a fan of purpleheart color (purple) but when I put the finish on the piece I had it turn a beautiful deep red. Still holding that color and it’s been about 6 years I would guess.

It’s beautiful, like the wood combo and the joints are awesome. I’m sure it sounds good as it looks. Great work!
