I decided to build my daughter a jewelry/music box of her birthday. I loved working with the walnut when i built my last project so i figured that i would use it again. This was my first attempt at making really nice miter joints with splines. It turned out better then i hoped. I used cherry for the splines but now looking at it i think maple would have stood out better. The panel in the lid is made from a nice curly maple block given to me by my wife’s grandfather. He unfortunately did not get to see it as he passed away last week. The music movement took some work to get right but it was fun trying to figure out how to get the on/off switch lined up. Thanks for looking.
