Hello: Can I just ask a question? I want to desgin a music box … but am most interested in the kinds of wood to use as the “tone” board (have no idea if that verbage fits the bill)—that is: the piece of wood that the music box mechanism sits on. Please refer to: http://www.bettermusicboxes.com/Products/Movements/Installation/Sankyo_Critical_Dimensions.pdf
I guess you’ll have to copy and paste this URL into your brower (don’t know how to insert links)
Or go to www.bettermusicboxes.com —click on: “Movements”—“Box Design & Installation Considerations”—“Demensional Requirements PDF Drawing”.
I am interested in any ideas or theory about music box construction that will … ahh… ... make it sound as good as it can. Especially as it relates to the kinds of wood and properties of wood that is desireable and why.
