My daughter teaches elementary school music and art and this year has been a challenging one. She has a blind student in one of her art classes and she also has a deaf child in her music class. The boy in her music class has cochlear implants and has very limited hearing so she has to sign to him. She came up with the idea of making a drum that he could sit on and "feel" the sound so she drafted me to help. The drum is called a cajon(pronounced cahone) and this one is made of 1/2" baltic birch plywood with a 1/4 baltic birch rear panel and an 1/8" tapa or skin. The screw configuration on the tapa is really neat because the placement of the screws at the top lets you slap the corners to produce a higher pitched sound. The sound resonates though the cajon and comes out a 4" hole at the rear. The hardest part of the project was finding the 1/8" plywood for the tapa and I ended up ordering it from Pennsylvania. Side note: Two sheets of 15 X 30 plywood was $8 and the shipping was $17. All in a days work, right?
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
