Miniature Wooden Music Box

This little gem plays the Pink Panther theme song when you spin the crank. The box itself is made of mostly walnut with other woods striping the lid — oak, maple, cherry. The sound emanates from copper pipes in the way of a giant church organ. There is also a copper plate with holes drilled into it to act as a speaker screen to allow the music to float out as well. Its pretty amazing the way the music is amplified by these two styles of sautered metal designs incorporated into the top of the wooden lid.


Travel Chess Set

This chess set is created out of maple and walnut woods to create the “whites” and “blacks”. Its got small magnets on the inside corners to hold the board tightly closed when its folded in half. The pieces all fit snuggly inside and is practically a puzzle in its own right to put away!

And here are some of the behind-the-scenes, making-of shots:
