Music Box
Nov 1st, 2016 at 5:09pm
 
A friend gave me a small piece of highly figured walnut and asked if I would make a music box for him as a gift to his wife. There was not enough wood to make the body from one piece, so I assembled eight staved sections before turning. I had just enough wood left for the lid. The bottom was turned from another piece of walnut, not as highly figured, but not that visible either.

It has a 30 note movement that plays "Greensleeves" (a Tudor period tune). The lid carving is a Tudor rose.

The box is about 4.5" dia. x 4" high.

I drew the original pattern on vellum then transferred it to the lid using carbon paper (which was barely visible). I went over the tracing with a fine Sharpie and incised the pattern with a narrow (30 deg.) V chisel. The lathe chuck makes a great holder for carving.
