The first picture is a notch cut with the dremel to allow the spring of the music box to attach to the plunger.

This is the bottom and the well that I had to drill to handle the winding key.

The music box movement.

And getting ahead of myself I cut the felt inserts.

I've never tried flocking. Has anyone?

Today I made the little legs, installed the hinges, finish sanded and applied a coat of finish.

Next day in the shop I'll re-sand the pieces and re-coat with the Minwax Antique Oil. Then I will assemble it and put on a final coat of finish.

Put the third coat of Minwax Antique Oil on today. The Padauk seems to be absorbing a lot of finish and not yet building up. I'll try another coat tomorrow and see how it looks. I didn't notice this on my Flower bowl that had padauk in it as well.

All done now. Put it all together this morning. I added the small chain as I thought where the top overlaps the base it will put a lot of stress on the hinges if it is opened to far. The chain restricts it but the cover will still stay open. The box is for a young child.
