Cajon Drum

 Hunter wanted to do something original for his girlfriend's Birthday. 

 She plays percussion in the band and was wanting a Cajon drum

He did alot of google research and video watching on youtube

 and decided it would be special if he made it........

 He and Joe started Wednesday night.

They measured and cut, sanded and stained

Watched and waited for polyurethane to dry.

There's a place for a whole, it was Joe's idea to cut a cross instead, good call!

The inner working of a Cajon drum

After four days it was finished! 

 He went over to her house tonight, the day before her 17th birthday
 and gave it to her.....and she liked it!  Really, really liked it! 

The End :)

She didn't just like it . . . she LOVED it!! What an incredibly thoughtful gift. And it means even more that Hunter made it himself. GREAT job!!!
