Can someone tell me the glueing process? Does the foot and head of the drum get glued to the box, or just the two sides of the drum to the box sides? Thank you in advance. Bud Dennis

I've assembled the drum except for the last side. Testing so far results in all three of the longest tongues being almost identical frequencies. I'm hesitant to glue up the last side until I know if I can tune the tongues to vary the notes. If tuning options are not available, I don't see the point in the project getting only 4 notes and not six.

I've completed the drum it sounds great! You really don't get much sound until you complete the chamber.
