I made this box from Red Iron bark a very heavy timber used mainly for house stumps.
I found a few post discarded o the footpath and brought them home. The post was jointed
and then ripped into suitable lenghts.
I made the frame using lock miter joinery and inserted tha base into a recess.
The top was a series pieces cut at various lenghts and separated by narrow strips at each end.
Entry is via the base
I sanded and polished the timber it achieve the resultant finish.
I downloaded Pana tuner to help me try and tune it.
It ended up as a Tongue Drum
