Do You Build Stuff? Tinker? Whatever?
I've always enjoyed building little things or taking things apart and doing werid stuff to it, but lately I've found I'm ejoying doing more serious stuff.
Not long ago a friend and I started getting into building some homemade instruments. We did a few small things here and there. We were talking about how we both liked a latin percussion instrument called a Cajon (Not cajones!) so we decided to set about designing and building some for ourselves. They came out good enough that several people have said they wanted to buy them. Don't know if we'll keep at it but I've really found I enjoy building stuff so now I'm looking for other interesting instruments to build. What next?
What do you all like to tinker with or build? Does anyone have any cool projects they've built that they've been particularly proud of?
Here's my finished Cajon:
Here's one being played exceedingly well: http://youtu.be/HXeNTf2EaUI
