The final step is the easiest. Sanding. Once the glue is dry, all you need to do is sand down the sides and the corners to make the drum look nice an...
This will show you how to make a bongo drum (shell only) without a solid piece of wood.
Step 1: The Math
We chose to use 9 pieces of wood to make the shell. The math behind this is that esentially we are trying to make a circle. There are 360 degrees in a circle. we are using 9 pieces. two of the sides of each piece are being cut. 2x9=18, and then we divide 360 by 18. This turns into 20, so each side of each piece of wood will be cut at a 20 degree angle.
