Please continue to offer these kits. They are the only kits I can find on the 'net which are appropriately sized, simple and elegant. I am making them for middle school goddaughters; perfect size!

Good quality wood and fabrication.
I suggest pre-fitting each part before gluing. I didn't and got a couple pieces installed backwards.

Boxes for the ladies!
I would recommend this for others. It is a quick, easy and good way to make a jewelry box for the ladies. It does not require any craftsmanship, but . . . .

Will make a good Xmas gift
Glued up easily only needed minor sanding. Finished with about 5 coats of amber shellac. Decided not to install the musical movement. Also the supplied felt wouldn't even cover the whole bottom in one piece so I added my own. Overall very good.

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
BEST ANSWER: Make a plywood template the size of the top. drill holes completely through the plywood where the hinges go. Then lay the plywood on the walnut top and mark the holes by drilling through the plywood into the walnut. (not too deep!)
Is the musical movement included? If not, how much is it and do you have them?
Chuck C on Oct 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: A musical movement is not available. For musical movements see http://www.rockler.com/18-note-musical-movements
will it take a 30notemusicalmovement?
Earl F on Jan 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: you have to purchase the player separately. Then it plays a song. I didn't count the notes
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
How do you install the stopper wire of the musical instrument to be above the back of the box if you have the Plexiglas installed protecting the movement?

Will this box accommodate a 50 note sankyo orpheus movement?
Will B on Nov 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: it should fit. I am not familure with this sankyo.i built a couple of these boxes and had no problem with the fit. I did have to have a piece of glass cut for the actuateing arm on the side of the box.
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.
