Has anyone tried to make the music box from the movie Labyrinth?

I would like to make this for my mother...but cannot find anyone who has this as a DIY.  Any tips?

Sorry - been VERY sick.  Yup - that's it!
Darn. I was afraid of that. I don't know of anything that could cut such tiny yet straight pieces. I'd imagine something like a bandsaw could be used, but that's like using dynamite to hammer a nail.

I guess hammering can be fun if you have some extra dynamite lying around... But yeah, lots of picture analysis and putting the details onto paper plans, and then lots of finagling with odd tools. That's the best I can think up! I know it's lame, sorry.
ALSO
I hope you're feeling better!

Nope - not lame at all.  Thanks for confirming that this would be a little labor intensive.  Feeling much better, still not 100%, but I'll take it!  Thanks again!!
Post a picture and I'll tell you how I would build it...
