Heart-shaped bandsawn music box I made my wife for Valentine’s Day. Made from padauk with lacquer finish. Right side compartment has music movement. Left side compartment is flocked. Red epoxy stripe in middle of the top.

Nice use of the wood. I usually avoid Padauk with sap wood. I like how you made it a great visual element. Nice eye for design. Robert

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Beautiful box—I particularly like your choice of hinges.
