Another try at Andys art box , Its a test box for a music box that I will be building . Learned alot about music boxes while making it . The box is made with pine stained with dye on the case . The skirt and inner box is stained with dark walnut oil base . The keys and dowel hole are done in dark walnut .The sides were cut from a 2×4 that was split in half and miter so the grain would run around the box . The top was also split and book matched I glued it to the carcass top at a slight angle .The skirts bottom is a little higher in the front than in the back so that the music escapes more towards the front of the box.
Here it is in video if you want to hear it play http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKGZiOhbmdc&feature=player_embedded
