I made a music box version of this one about a year ago, but I was disappointed with the results.
It was WAAY too complicated, so I dumbed the mechanism down to six gears and a cam.
The idea for the music-box-to-lamp conversion came to me while I was watching a photographer blast away with his umbrella strobes.
A light bulb appeared over my head – happens a lot.
My guardian angel – it wasn’t my idea – suggested that I look for a doll umbrella on eBay.
Sure enough, American Girl doll accessories to the rescue !!!
So I had a little fun, honed some skills, and came up with yet another reason to make a video.
You’ll find that here … https://vimeo.com/183579177
