My second box also incorporates the well beaten abaca plus the hemp that used to be my Christmas tree.
I made a drum from a cardboard cylinder with abaca and hemp. I made the string from a mix of the two fibres and the bits on the end from hemp pulp. The abaca worked beautifully as the drum surface. It makes a lovely sound, I made a video but unfortunately had the sound turned off.
I cut all the musical symbols out of abaca.
