Music Boxes

 

 

The ornate and delicate orchestra music box was made using a few hand tools in 1964; it was made as a gift for my wife on her 21st birthday. The automaton whistling bird was a difficult project; it has a sophisticated self built music box. The other music boxes have commercially made music box movements, but the figurines are self made.

Inspired by a dream, I made this as a gift for my wife's 21st birthday.
