Last week I went to a gourd festival and made this drum in one of the prefestival classes.  It is made out of a large gourd with a goat skin head and BB's & shot to make the ocean sound.  Too bad I can't post sound.

and the back

That's really cool!  I've got a huge gourd that I've been contemplating on what to do to it...
