hello there, my names laurence, im from england, ive been wanting to get into building cajons for a while now, i cant afford to buy one so i decided why not make it. i found this blog today and thought youd be a good person to ask about this. do you have some good tips, resources about the building process/materials etc? i would be most appreciative. i look forward to hearing back from you.
Thank you so much for your message. I cannot see what date you sent this but, I have not checked this for quite a long time so if this reply comes late to you I do apologize and I hope I can be of some help.
To be honest. I have never built a cajon before from scratch so I cannot give you any good first hand experience. I can however point you in the direction of some people who can.
Mike Quain is a great guy who builds his own cajons in Colorado.
His website is: http://quainpercussion.com
His Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/quainpercussion
I know he would be happy to give you some pointers.
Also, if you are on Facebook, feel free to join our group and you can ask many people who have built cajons:
