Several. Two of my favorite drums started as old wooden bowls. I have made many single sided hand drums and several large Pow-wow floor drums. The largest project is a table that has on occasion functioned very well as the bass blaster of bass drums. It can be seen here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/glasstouch24/sets/72157622831880582/with/4116162342/ The Antique Wagon Drum is also a notable project and sounds well. As a sculptural object in a gallery setting it cannot be played at all or touched. Rawhide rattles are also in my list of things that have been made.
African and Native American which includes Singing.
I have not had any formal lessons in drumming. Someone recently asked how long I have been singing Native songs(and drumming). After some thought, I responded a long time.
