>Mike, that is very cool. I've made a few rectangular tongue drums, but never a round one. I always put some kind of hole in the body to let the sound escape--is the bottom of this open?
I'm afraid that with the grain orientation of the top, you may end up with a broken tongue or two. And with the grain in line with the tongues, you should get more resonance, therefore a better sound--I hope you keep going with this idea!
