Heirloom Music Box

It's not often that you can build an heirloom project in such a short time. Especially one that sounds as good as it looks.

A lot of craftsmen have a music box on their woodworking bucket list. The pleasant sounds of a music box can calm crying babies and relieve stress in people of any age. Of course, the music is all in the works, so you can choose a melody that takes you to a happy place and time. But the box has to be something special to house your favorite tune. This box has everything needed — a beautiful shape, an elegant marquetry panel, and a banded top.
