I spent part of today painting the interior of my Tortuga Gourd Drum. It has a sea turtle on it and Tortuga means turtle. The next part is to put the head on it. But I think all the hide got used up on other drums, so I'll have to buy some more rawhide somewhere. That's what I get for procrastinating. While my project was on the back burner all the rawhide got used up by someone else. But at least I made some progress.
No matter what kind of drum you are making, have fun today working on it. There are really simple drums and really complicated ones. I would say this gourd drum is moderately complicated.
