• Are you looking for a coupon code to buy my software? You can get one from lots of 3rd party sites but they won't work. My software never goes on sale and has never been discounted. The only coupon codes that are given is when I give a club presentation and I offer a discount to the attendees. Other than that, everyone pays the same price.

Jewelry/Music Box

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.
