Woodworking Experience:
Expensive but worth it
I made a jewelry box for my wife and put one of these in it. Very beautiful melody.

It was expensive, but so nice I bought another for another box for a friend.

Looks great, plays beautifully and was easy to install. As a previous reviewer states - I wish there were more to chose from in this 30 note. For that fact alone I may be forced to shop elsewhere for them. But this is very nice and I am happy with it.

This was a replacement for a customer's antique. The look and sound was perfect and the stop was easy to arrange from the existing mechanism. She cried when she heard it again for the first time in years!

High quality musical movement. My only complaint is that you only carry two different songs at this price range. This is about the top of my price range for the musical movements and would sure like to see more options. I have been making music boxes for my youngest daughter since she was about 6 and she is now 32.

Would be nice to include a template for drilling mounting holes and winding key. Like that it included the self adhesive label showing which musical piece it is that can be mounted on bottom of box

Nice music box
This is a nice music box. Fit fine in the box I made. Has a good sound. My only complaint is that it came with machine screws instead of wood screws. They were useless so I had to go buy some wood screws to attach it.

What are the melody choices???Who wants one of these if it has to be buying a pig in a poke???
dan k on Apr 14, 2015
Tchaikovsky waltz of the flowers.
What music titles?
A shopper on Sep 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Tchaikovsky's Waltz of the Flowers
Would this work well in a custom jewelry box?
Henry H on Feb 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It works good in the custom box that I made. The plans called for this particular music instrument. The only drawback is that it does not shut off automatically when box is closed. I had to make my own method of shutting it off when I closed the box. My wife is enjoying it. Hope this helps.
What does the box look like from the plans that are included?
Kirk L on Mar 24, 2019

I didn’t build this music box but if you go to Woodsmithplans on internet and type Heirloom Music Box in search window and you will see a great music box to build. I have done six for the family and they are great. Call seven one four four one four nine two seven nine for questions
30 note musical movement has no shut-off lever, how do you stop it?
A shopper on May 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The musical movement is wound up and spring driven. There is no way to stop the movement, except to let it wind down as it plays. It plays a very pretty melody which my wife just loves.
