Those are really cool Ronn.  Full of colors that I could see kids liking.  Great job.

Very nice Ronn, but why just the 18 note movements? you could have gone for the 30 or 72 note ones, i mean what's the deal? it's only 400 bucks more for the 72:blink: seriously those are nice and i'm sure they will treasure them. in days gone by i was able to buy movements from Reuge (swiss) they had dozens of tunes to choose from but alas they don't sell to the general public anymore. beautiful work sir!

Ron these are awesome! That veneering class is paying off. Where did you get the music thingy?

Musicboxhouse.com.  I think it's a small business. Very helpful over the phone.

These look great! The contrast between the dye and natural timber is awesome. A good use of timber for the purpose.

Very nice! Did you make up the veneer patterns from scratch, or have some particular inspiration?

Is saw a pic of a white box with a filed of Dimaond shapes on line. That inspired the box with the squares.  The other was my own design.  Thanks.

Very nice, Ronn!  Making a music box or two is on my woodworking bucket list.  When I finally get around to building one or two I hope they turn out that nice.
