My brother, sister-in-law and nieces have been living in Japan and just moved to Germany by way of the States and where here for Christmas so I decided to make the 2 older girls music boxes for Christmas and here is the result. One is bloodwood and curly maple and the other is lacewood and curly maple, both finished with boiled linseed oil.
The basic design came from a Fine Wood Working article and was adapted to include the music mechanism. If you are thinking of making one of these make sure that you figure out how you are going to incorporate the mechanism well in advance or it will give you a headache… not that I have personal experience with that…
