This Cajon is the perfect alternative to a drum set when room is an issue. It reproduces the sounds of the bass and snares beautifully.

Step 1: Assembly

Each piece of plywood was precisely cut and glued. Clamps were placed to on woodblocks that will support the snare wire. Snare wire was screwed into place. A cross was wood burned on the front. A light coat of stain was applied. The 4 inch hole amplifies the sound. Plywood becomes a musical instrument...

<p>Nice job, good looking cajon. Just wondering if you can provide more details concerning the dimensions of the spacing between the snare wires and the tapa? I am in the process of building a similar style cajon and would appreciate your input. Thanks.</p>
I have all the specs documented in a folder, but unfortunately we have just relocated and are waiting on completion of our house. Most of our belongings are in storage right now, including that particular folder. I will search through computer files to see if I can find anything there.
<p>OK, sounds good. I know what the location/storage process is like. Been there, done that. No rush or no big deal if you can't find it. Would save a me little time if the info should turn up. Thanks again.</p>
<p>NIce project , color me stupid though , how does this work ? Thank you .</p><p>The engraving is beuatiful . Is this a cnc router patern ? </p>
A person sits on the box and when the top front is tapped it sounds like a snare drum. Hit it more in the center and it sounds like a bass drum. The sound can vary depending on how you hit it. Here's a link for an example. <br>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isvDrgNth2I<br><br>The image was burned on their with a simple wood burning tool. Thank you for your compliment.
<p>I really like this! Simple effort and machinery, yet not simple results.</p>
<p>I made a Cajon a few years back. Beautiful instrument! </p>
