This music box was made of Ash with Walnut burl veneer. It is completely trimmed in holly.
The mechanical movement plays cannon in D when the box opens.

That is a pretty box. I really like Walnut burl. I’m wondering what the size of the box is and if the music mechanism could be closer to one side and have room in the box for ?? Nice work though.

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

The box Is about 7 by 7 ( I cant remember exact)
It could absolutely by closer. I believe it COULD be harder to get the stopper pin to work if its closer but I am not positive about that. I simply did not try and snug it up because this is intended only as decoration and a music box.
