  6. Butternut Box

    The story I saw an add in local newspaper for wood in a barn since early 80,s. Had to go look. Was so dark in there could hardly see it. Guy said it was maybe walnut or butternut.

  7. Music Box replica circa 1845

    Built this music box for a friend that is a collector of 18th century music boxes. He had a similar box I used for the detail and joinery. The box had challenging "double blind" dove tails that had to be hand cut. I made a prototype to get the joinery right. The box is made from french...

  11. Box #10 My first music box!

    Looked hard to find music box mechanisms that have an on/off lever, so the music will start when the box is opened. Found relatively nice ones at Klockit.com - each plays one of 4 different tunes @ about $8.00 per unit. Installing the mechanism was relatively easy, but connecting the lever to...

  15. Music Box

    "Relatively" recent project of cherry wood. Design took years to evolve, months to mature the design and size and two years to complete the display. As with my "aquarium", besides the materials and individual design, the display and association with other objects were as important. Some would...
