Had to try my hand at a music box


#1

I decided to use the Harry Potter theme. It was one of my son’s favorite movies when he was younger. I made it out of walnut. It’s been stained and coated. Doing this it actually came out darker than I planned.

Very nice! :grinning:


#3

Thanks jules


#4

You got a really nice finish on that…the gloss looks good. Very professional.


#5

Thanks , but up close I have some spots I that just didn’t come out right. Mainly because of the grain of the wood and the dark stain I used. But I’m happy with it.:slight_smile:

Such a nice box, a real collector’s item! When you said music box I was expecting to see a little hand crank music box in there but I gather this is for storage of CDs and such, right?

I have one of those hand crank music boxes that you put the song on paper (and you can make your own) through. Keep meaning to make a box for it, and a walnut one like your would look great. Gotta stop being lazy!

Turned out very nice!

I’ve about decided to drop some dark brown acrylic on my next walnut engrave … before removing the masking. See if I like that better.


#8

Lovely finish on that, it’s a nice looking thing indeed.


#9

It’s a wind up harry potter theme movement. It’s hidden.:):grin:


#10

I really like the finish actually. Very nice!


#11

Even more cool!


#12

This is so elegant. I’m impressed!


#13

Very nice job. Finish is great!

It’s been my experience that with walnut you don’t need a stain. It will darken over time with just a clear laquer or poly.
