This Week in the Shop: The Cajon Drum

This week, I prepped for this summer’s woodshop classes.  The students will be building these benches, mending and designing chairs and constructing Cajon drums.  I’ve secured enough lumber for the benches, pulling plywood chair designs from various sources and built this example project.  Look to the above link for construction details.

I finished the sides in Miniwax Polyshades.  Acrylic paints cover the top and rear .

And how it sounds!
