Intro to Carpentry: Build a Box-Drum (Cajon)

This lightweight box-drum, originating in Peru, is easy to transport, and can be outfitted with accessories such as snares and bells. Make and take home a versatile drum, while gaining skills to use in future DIY projects.

(Cajons are also great as extra seating or sidetables when you’re not playing, unlike that dusty saxophone/didgeridoo/ukelele in the corner - talk about versatility!)

Skill level: This class is built for beginners; open to ages 16+ (minors will need a signed youth waiver.)

Topics covered:
* measuring & marking accurately
* basic tablesaw, scrollsaw, and drillpress
* assembly: power drills & drivers
* finishing: sanding and rounding edges
