For the beginner a framing clamp is a must, even for a advanced wood worker it’s a must.
The misters were cut perfect

Great Christmas present
I ordered this kit for my 13 year old granddaughter for Christmas.. I glued her initials and several hearts to the lid. Went together smoothly. The divider between the misuc box and jewerly section was just a tad too long. Just sanded it down with bench sander. Three coats of gloss poly and it shined like ice.

I wanted a quick project for my Grand Daughter's 2nd birthday whish is Dec 23rd. I have several Christmas presents to work on as well so I needed to simplify this project. We have a very similar music box in our "children's" bedroom that she and her brother listen too when they sleep over. This will be a keepsake for her.

What would be an appropriate lid support for this box?
Tim B on May 19, 2015

will it take a 30notemusicalmovement?

what type of stain and color on walnut wood ?
Earl F on Jan 3, 2019
I just used a clear varnish, couple of coats. That really brings out the depth of the wood without covering up the grain. If you plan to put a velvet liner inside you might ample varnish that area to make sure you like it. /Frederic

Greensleeves 18-Note Musical Movement
BEST ANSWER: i made these musical boxes for my granddaughters and i didn't install the plexiglass in them so i just mounted where they fit. sorry i couldn't be more help.
what does the inside look like? are there compartments?
Steve on Oct 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: At one end of the compartment there is a small space provided for a music box to be installed. The inside is well sanded and ready to finish or add felt for a softer interior, The divider between the musical movement device and the rest of the interior is a matching piece of walnut, approx. 1/4" thick, also ready to finish. They provide a piece of clear glass to go over the musical movement device, but there is no clear set of instructions on how that relates to the use of the music box, itself. Hope this helps.
