Used a box I had made with walnut and curly maple which used box joints. The top and bottom has some cut in strips of Purple Heart in each piece. The top when routing the edges one area split out so I had to change direction and trimmed off the edges and added some walnut trim to remove the tear out.

The initial on the top was to be dremeled M with script font but the line off the M looks like an e , well her name is Meggin so she should be ok with it. Back filled with timbermate and sanded down.

The music box was done with a dowel rod and just placed a small cover in the bottom section.

Thanks for looking.
