Homemade Xylophone - 5 Simple Tools To Build a Wooden Xylophone at Home

A box-resonated wooden xylophone is one of the most simplest kinds of xylophones you can build at home.

The reason why I recommend a xylophone is because, unlike guitars that have strings or musical instruments that require precise fabrication, a simple xylophone can be built out of hardwood and a few simple tools, over the weekend.

There are the 5 tools you need:
  1. Electric drill with sanding attachment
  2. Screwdriver
  3. Wood saw
  4. Small hammer
  5. Sand paper

You should be able to get most of these from your own garage or workshop, except the electric drill, which you can borrow from a friend or buy at the hardware store.
