This is a box I made for my son’s girlfriend for Christmas. Woods are Curley Maple & Padauk. The movement plays Music Box Dancer.This is my first attempt at something of this magnatude (for me) since I’ve only been woodworking for a few months. Sort of a “by the seat of my pants” project. No plans. I found a few boxes I like online & went from there. Needless to say LOTS of mistakes but overall it came out well. This was also my first attempt at mortising for hinges. I also tried some inlays that didn’t turn out so well so I scrapped them. All in all I learned alot from the project & the info posted on this site. Thank you all. Constructive critisim is welcomed…Please!
