My current creations are a pair of music boxes. I was commissioned by my sister to create 2 gifts. That was all she asked for. Since both are for musicians, I suggested a music box. She found the tunes and the boxes were built around their themes, hopefully appropriate for each recipient.
The one with the musical staff is made of maple and sapele with engraved symbols. It has a hinge made with the wood and pinned with a brass rod.
The second is made from 2 species of rosewood – scraps from a parquet floor project I did for a friend around 2002.
All of the pieces from both boxes are scraps, glued and refitted into the shapes I needed.
