Tools, Jigs, and Materials

This section explains all the equipment and supplies necessary to build taiko exactly as described by this manual. All the tools and jigs that we describe are used by Zenshin Daiko in their drum-making process. A number of the tools and jigs they employ make building taiko much easier, but they are not necessarily required.
