I started woodworking four years ago, after my daughter was born. I have always been into “This Old House”, “Yankee Workshop”, etc. For my daughter’s first christmas I decided to make her a music box. At the time, all I had was a table saw and some wood glue. Needless to say…her’s is not the best looking music box but it is more about the sentiment. We still crank it up every night when we put her to bed.
Next came my wife’s first mother’s day. I decided to make her a music box as well. This time the box came out a little better due to the addition of a router and router table.
Now, my son was born on christmas morning 2007. Yup, anyone that thinks that’s “neet”, “cool”, or “precious”
has never gone through this experience. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. So now it is his turn to get a music box made by daddy.
I joined LJs after the project was finished but I wanted to include some pics of the after because this is by far the best work I have done. I seldom get a chance to go out to the garage and work on projects other than the “honey do’s”
If you have any questions I’ll be glad to try to answer them but remember that I am a novice and most of the time if I do something good it was a mistake.
Thanks for looking.
