non-musical box

This week I cobbled together a simple mechanism for a nice wooden box I bought at a charity shop. The box originally held two packs of playing cards but I'm thinking it could just be for trinkets. I've made it so as the mechanism is fully housed in the hinged lid. Atop the box will be one of my world famous (!) poseable ballerina figures! So, as the handle is turned, she will pirouette to whatever tune you care to hum. If you would like the finished article (£20 including free world-wide p&p) please just comment. I'll leave it here for a week before I put it in one of my shops.
