Walnut Music Box
Evan made this music box as a gift for his sweetheart. The box sides are quartersawn walnut veneer laminated over curved molds. The box top and bottom, which is also a sound board, are made of 1⁄4-in. honeycomb panel used in the aircraft industry. The sunburst design on the top is made using a radial pattern of mahogany veneer. The parts are held together with long screws so the box can be disassembled if necessary. A large mechanism inside plays Mozart, specifically “The Magic Flute,” “Eine Klien Nachtmusik,” and “Turkish March.”
