6" Deer Hide Drum with Stick and Carrying Bag
6" round drum of white-tailed deer hide. Comes with a wooden stick a cloth carrying bag.
This design looks like the silhouettes of trees in front of a sunset or a forest fire.
I made all of the drum myself including fleshing, de-hairing and stretching the hide, making the wooden frame, cutting the lacing from rawhide, tie-dying the hide and finally stretching the drum.
This cute little drum sounds best when held in your hand but it sits on its own so it can easily be played with one hand, by a child or even a toddler.
The frame is made from a repurposed wooden bowl.
The colour is dyed into the hide so that it will not wear off with use.
The carrying bag is cloth.
