When woodworkers talk about building an instrument, a guitar usually comes to mind. Maybe a violin. Maybe a dulcimer.
But drums? You bet!
This site, run by PDGood, goes into very good detail about the materials, methods and special hardware needed to build a drum kit. Whether you choose to go with plywood, segmented, steam bent or solid construction, there are plenty of options for the budding skin smasher. Hardware selection, wraps, glue choices and drum heads are all described in detail, giving in-depth insight into the building process.
