White Tail Deer Rawhide105$ US
This Raw hide is wild White Tail Deer. (we always select hides with no inconvenient bullet holes) Rawhide is used to make Hand Drums and Rattles. Raw hide is not leather….it has not been tanned….The process of creating rawhide involves removing the hair and thats it!! When soaked in water overnight it will become soft (like skin) and then when stretched over a drum and dried the skin becomes hard and sings. These are quite large hides and will make at least 3 and as many as 5 drums (depending upon the size of drum frame).
We have an abundance of Moose Rawhide quarters that are not big enough for drums and thought we would share with a special price. Each piece is a quarter moose hide, the sizes run about 6 to 8 sq ft. We are offering it in two different thicknesses. Rattle making thickness is thinner, more pliable and easily sewn when soaked with a # 5 or #3 glover needle (in stock in our needle section). A moose rattle makes the BEST sweat lodge rattle and also great for kid’s rattles as kids can’t chew them. The heavier-thicker pieces are great for powwow drum lacing, snowshoe lacing and other heavy crafting ties. These pieces are NOT guaranteed to be large enough for drums. You might get a 12″ drum out of it. These are on a serious sale cuz we are not able to make any large drums out of them.
Deer Rawhide Scraps

Hand Drum Hoops22$ US – 48$ US
Our drums are VERY unusual in that we make our own hoops. These days most (virtually ALL) drum makers are using plywood maple frames made overseas or mitred multi pieced wood frames that are 8 to 12 sided.
We order white ash lumber in large dimension, and then cut it into lats of different sizes (for different hoops) and steam and bend by hand. We glue the connection with a water proof glue and then sand/router all edges. Our hoops are 98% round. Ash is a very strong wood so our hoops will not move or bend over time no matter what kind of hide is pulled over them.
Dog Rawhide Chews8$ US – 14$ US
This product comes strongly recommended by every dog in the neighbourhood!! We have been making drums for over 20 years and very quickly started taking the scraps rolling them up, letting them dry and giving them to our dogs. There are no preservatives, colouring, flavour added….just pure Rawhide. Dogs visiting our house rush in the door past our legs to grab a dog chew from the basket…..so one of our dogs suggested during a family business meeting that we add them to our web site. Who were we to say no…so nice of him to share….
