This instructable describes the process to build a small cajon similar to commercially available ones. I will call it mini cajon, but the instructions can be easily applied to build a full size cajon.
At the time of writing I could find 3 instructables on how to build full size cajones: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-a-cajon/ http://www.instructables.com/id/built-your-own-Cajon-for-less-than-25-Euro/ http://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Build-Your-Own-Cajon-Box-Drum/
So why bother with another instructables? The reason is simple: instead of using snare wires to obtain the snare sound I have used a guitar string. Many cajones are built in this way and I thought someone out there might find this interesting.
Unlike full size cajones, you cannot sit on a mini cajon but you rather hold it between your legs at knees height when playing it. It is a very compact and portable solution when you need a good percussion instrument on the go.
