Pueblo Indian Drum

End Nov. 2009

Time to Carve: 1 hour
Leather work: 1.5 hours
Finishing: 1.5 hours

The base of the slide is pine with a 3/4 in hole drilled through it and painted white. The leather drum top and bottom is made from some thin leather sewed with some waxed thread. The detailed painting was done once the drum top and bottom were added. Holes were cut through the top and bottom to match the hole in the slide body. A couple of coats of poly finish the slide. The long and short of it... I don't like this slide. It really has nothing to do with the pattern but on how mine turned out. I should have made the drum larger, the leather on the drum skins should have been thinner, and I really should have taken more time painting the fine detail on this one.
