How about a fiddle?

Wordsnwood (Art Mulder) says:

A wooden briefcase sounds easy, but too easy. A wooden backpack, sounds ridiculous. Hmm, can you steam bend these? That could get interesting. It'd probably cause the plywood to delaminate. You could make a solid core door out of a hollow core door!

jvin248 says:

What to build with hollow core doors? … I've considered building a Hurdy Gurdy … might be a cool door project.

The Grant Alexander says:

Very nice! I'm putting a Bongo on the make list for my son 😁

Massimiliano Salzano says:

Hey Tim, we had the same idea. A month ago, I built a space-saving piece of furniture, and at the end of the video I started playing it, that piece of furniture had a really nice sound. Next time we will jam together, me from Italy and you from the states. hahaha

Dustin Bess says:

Tim how about making a computer desk from old doors, pallets, and metal..

Stephen Parkes says:

Wonderfull, how about some medieval or world music style strings or go mad and make a woodwind instrument.

Chris Mitchell says:

The pun in the thumbnail was great! Oh, and the video too.

Sapele Steve says:

Leave it to Tim to make a rectangular bongo drum, which sounds great! Now you need to make a set of round bongo drums in a circular pattern. That should give you lots of different sounds & keep you busy banging out your tunes. BTW, that was some nice stand up bass playing! Be good………… πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ₯πŸ₯

You are one cool bohemian cat. : ) Great video. Creative project. Where do you get these ideas? : ) Mahalo for sharing. : )

Andrew Gibson says:

Sorry Tim my bad. Assumed and made an ass out of me. Keep up the great work and look forward to seeing your next project. Respect from ScotlandπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Steve Soldwedel says:

Tim, do you do anything with the cardboard from within the door?

Fred McIntyre says:

Cool stuff Tim, awesome work! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘ŠπŸ» ….. I think it would be cool to either make a pallet (for obvious reasons) or a solid 3, 4, or 6 panel door out of hollow core closet doors.

davebauerart says:

My table saw chips out the doors quite a bit. It's a typical combo blade. Do you think I need a different one? Or my blue tape zero clearance is not doing the trick.

Andrew Gibson says:

Old school analogue synth casing i.e mini MoogπŸ€” or are synths the work of the devil 🀫

Mr. Fister says:

Cymbals from closet doors.

Rag Tie says:

Prolly your best ever…

Seth Galitzer says:

The bongos are groovy, man, just groovy. 😎 Thanks for sharing!

funkysod says:

Just thought the other day "how about a desktop cajon". This is better!

Greg Brock says:

Perhaps a cajΓ³n would be the logical next step? I’d dig that.

nzuliddu says:

You should definitely build something like a snare drum or bass drum from hollow core doors, great vid!

Dave Loderhose says:

Closet Doors.

Gforceracing20 says:

How much glue accumulation do you think is under a woodworkers workbench from wiping the excess off of our fingers? Hahaha.

WES says:

Make a xylophone from doors.
