I started making wooden music boxes in 1980. As I made more boxes the designs and construction evolved into quality works of art. I use exotic hardwoods finished with tung oil which offers a glossy sheen while maintaining the beautiful natural colors and textures of the different woods. The unique wooden hinges are a special signature feature of my original music boxes. Wherever possible the inlay designs or natural images in the wood grain will correlate to the music in the box. For example I made a mahogany box that had a beautiful “rainbow” pattern in the grain of the wood, so the music it played was “Over the Rainbow”. Each box is sequentially numbered, dated and initialed or signed. There is limited edition numbering for those designed by Cynthia. My music boxes feature the finest quality Swiss made musical movements.
I do not make the musical movements. Custom songs can be obtained but they are very expensive and take many weeks to obtain.
