Here are some picts of my 2nd box. I used left over curly maple from my 1st box and mahogany. This box has a 30 note music movement and a velvet ring bar. This was also the first time I have used decorative banding. I have been wanting to use that for years! Hinges are brusso and might be a little too small for this box- I like the back mortise style better I think.
