Default Lillian

Hi all -

Don't get on much these days - nor do I get in the shop as much as I would like - but - a new beautiful niece and her upcoming baptism inspired me to find shop time and make the attached music box.

The box is made of 1/2 inch corian, it measures 12x9 with a musical movement that plays memories - the box weighs in at 10lb 6ozs - about two pounds bigger than Lillian. The lid design is from "Hidden Hearts" in SSWS (don't remember which issue) and the front heart design is of my own making the old fashioned way - with templates, scissors and glue. The turquoise lettering and heart outline are my first experiment with in-lace (I am very pleased with the results and the product). Lastly the bottom lining is 1/8 inch Baltic birch with blue flocking.

Thanks for looking.

George, that is nothing short of impressive. And that inlay lettering looks like it was done by someone with years of experience -- hard to believe that was your "first experiment" with the technique.

What a beautiful piece. She is going ot treasure that music box. What blades do you use to cut the corian and where do you find the stuff? I'll have to give the inlace a try one of these days. Fay
Have a great day, Fay.

Thanks for all the kind comments -

Fay - I use flying Dutchman polar #7 to cut the corian - and as to supply - my brother in law manages construction sites and he saves the scraps for me.
