Tongue Drum Project, With Sound!

Joe from the US sent me these pictures of his latest project, a tongue drum for his girlfriend.
He constructed the box from 5/8" birch ply using the 1:6 guide and 372 saw. There's not much forgiveness in this stuff but he did a fine job.

The tongues were scroll sawed from a piece of purpleheart and you can see here from underneath a forstner bit was used for the fine tuning.

Here's the finished drum with hand made sticks and if you want hear it in action please click on the YouTube video at the bottom.
