01-23-10 Making a Music Box with Ralph Thorne Jr.

Original Gwinnett Woodworkers Association Class Date 01-23-10
Ralph Thorne Jr demonstrates how to make a music box for a Valentine’s Day present. Ralph started by making a top with a small rail and stile router bit set. This was like making a cabinet door except that the rails and stiles were much smaller. The top had a panel insert and although the router bit set also had a raised panel bit in it, Ralph choose to use a flat panel for the top. Ralph pointed out that the panel was a flat piece of popular it could be decorated by silk screening or with a piece of marquetry. You could also use a piece of etched glass or stained glass for the top panel. Ralph used a router table to show how to cut the rails and stiles. Filmed and uploaded in HD.
