Shepherd Blue Jay Drum

My Dad and I measured a log. Then he sawed the log and hollowed it. Then I took the bark off of it and my Dad and I sanded the log well. I was holding it while he sanded. Then my Dad and I went to the store to buy material for the top…like yellow taping and some tacks. Then we got back and my Dad found a blue strip. I held the yellow material down real tight while I put the blue strip along with putting the tacks in. I then cut the fringe.

My drum's dynamics are loud like thunder when I hit it hard. The pitch depends on where you strike it. I thought the timbre reminded me of my heart beating.
