Music Boxes

Spalted Bigleaf Maple Burl Music Box

Remember that intriguing wind-up music box of mom's that you played with as a kid?

If you'd like one of your own to enjoy and pass down to your own children, consider ordering a custom-made one.

I handcraft them on the lathe from various woods, and install a quality wind-up movement, typically an 18-note Sankyo. There are many, many tunes available in these movements (see the list below); they will play for approximately 3 minutes per wind-up. If there's a particular tune and wood you'd like, let me know and I'll check on availability and quote a price. Prices will vary, depending on the wood chosen, size, etc.


Spanish Cedar & Cherry Burl Music Box



I currently have the Spanish Cedar music box pictured here posted at http://www.timberturner.com/ ; it plays Brahm's Lullaby, that classic song that lulls a baby to sleep.












-------------------------------  Available Tunes -----------------------

The following is a list of tunes available, although I cannot guarantee their availability at all times. Some are in limited quantities, and may become unavailable. I don't stock any movements, I have to order them, so availability depends on the supplier's inventory. Some have sample audio clips available; let me know if you would like to hear a particular clip, and I'll see if it's available. There are other tunes available too, but possibly at a higher cost, from other suppliers.
