The following email was submitted from Andy at Windsor Plywood Calgary North location.
I’ve attached a pair of pictures of a Lebanese drum a customer has made from our rubber ply. His name is Khalil. He used multiple layers of the rubber ply, and moulded them into the body of the drum. He has stretched goat skin over to create the drum head.
Khalil told me he is one of two people in western Canada that makes these. I have not fact checked this, but it sounds cool!
Note: Rubber plywood is actually a plywood called Luan. The stock Windsor carries is 5.2mm in thickness and has a unidirectional veneer. Ideal for bending and curves.
