Introduction: Chinese Gong
This instructable will be teaching you how to make a Chinese Gong, which can be used for movies, fights, etc. I use it right before a ping pong match with my brother.
Step 1: The Materials You'll Need
Black spray paint Hammer Nails Tape measure Wood Fishing line (it shows rope but I ended up using fishing line instead) Saw Clear Polyurethane (optional) Drill
Step 2: Making the Pieces
Cut out the wood pieces that are one inch longer than the symbol on each side as shown. Make six of these
Step 3: Making the Box
Now take four pieces of the wood and nail them together.
Step 4: The Stand
Take the remaining pieces and nail those together and then nail them to the bottom of the box.
Step 5: Finishing Up the Gong
Now drill two holes into the top of the symbol as shown, then put on the clear polyurethane (optional to give it the shine) and the black spray paint to the box and tie the symbol to the box with the fishing line. I actually used screw-eyes to tie onto the wood. To make a stick you can simply take a stick and cover the end with rubber bands. You are now done!
