How I make a drum

I am on facebook!  And I would like you to join me as I show how I make a drum.  I am posting pictures and explanations in a photo album as I work through the long journey of creating a frame drum....from the hide's humble beginnings in a bucket of lime water--

to the painting of a drum with raw earth pigments.

The hide I will be working with is from the hunters of the Klahoose First Nation, who take deer for the elders and give me the skins.  Enjoy this journey of the drum on my facebook page.
