Diy Music Box

Dug points out a cool mechanical music box over @ ThinkGeek -

This music box kit works like a miniature player piano. There are no pins, but a strip of paper, which you punch yourself. You can replicate your favorite tunes or compose new ones.

Could be a fun project to build a classic-looking enclosure for.
