Music box & container

I became a grandfather on March 7! I wanted something for her to remember me by after i’m gone, so i made this music box and storage container. The music box is 1/4” solid walnut, the outside box is cherry veneer over mdf core. The engraving on the inside of the lid is the chorus to “you are my sunshine”

That is just beautiful! As is everything you make.

Don’t look up the verse lyrics of that song. Most of it other than the chorus is really sad.

I already did - and you’re right! In another project for her I’m making a video of me playing the ukelele and singing the song. BUT I re-wrote the lyrics.
