Music Boxes

Design your Music Box with me!

A recent music box custom designed for an anniversary gift this season! This music box is beautiful, thoughtful and personal with superb sound quality.

The movement plays Canon in D, which has three parts, by Johann Pachelbel. You can hear the music and see this box in action here:
A music box can be more than a box to hold the movement. You can incorporate a jewelry box or other container with the movement. There are so many possibilities here! I'd love to have a custom movement made with our bedtime lullaby (Durme, Durme) and give one to each child when they have their first born. 

Made from American Cherry because acoustically this wood gives a very nice tone when combined with the music box movement. The Sankyo movement is fine tuned by Better Music Boxes to sound as precise as possible. On their site you can listen to the various movements they offer and even contact them about having a custom movement made. 
The inlay shown is Claro Walnut and Western Maple and the hearts represent the family.
