Walnut Jewelry/Music Box


I made a number of these jewelry/music boxes decades ago and decided to do one as a raffle prize for my Mom’s family reunion.

Was fun to do one again, especially since the plans disappeared ages ago and I had to do this one from memory. My wife has one, and we have the one’ that I made for my Mom and Grandmother, so I had patterns to go by. :-)

Cutting the hinge mortises was a new experience, as I used my adjustable “Flip Stick” prototype that I made some time back. I was thinking of patenting the idea, but not sure if I want to spend the time and money.
