        There are lots of plans available on your favorite search engine.

        The basic concept is very easy to do. It gets tricky if you want to tune them since each piece of wood sounds slightly different. You'll need to carve out the bottom of the tongues to match the appropriate tones. Do this gently: since everything is attached each change has a global effect.

        Hopkin's Musical Instrument Design has a great section on this (only about a page on the tongue drums).

          Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

          He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver.

          We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
