Another box!

Another box!

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

Its possibly staged and not as impromptu as shown plus there is a cable attached at the back.

The wire is probably connected to a piezo microphone. I have one on my double bass. Makes it easily amplifiable.
