I am trying to find some info on making a coffee table drum. I saw one made on TV he used (tobanga wood?) and maple plywood. It had holes in the bottom for sound. Want to make one for a friend. Thank You Rickie

It was a table made out of maple and bubinga, it was hollow inside and had a hole in the bottom.It was basically a big Cajon drum.
