I want to make a wooden music box, where do I start?
The box would have an embossed panel with this logo on the front: https://si0.twimg.com/profile_images/1878799410/AnimalCrossingLeaf.png
on the top would be the speaker face, buttons to play and stop (2 seperate or a toggle) and a button to switch between playlists. On the back, would be an on/off switch and power cable if it requires one, although I'd prefer it having a battery.
So, what wiring/technology would I need? Could I break open an mp3 player and cannibalise it, or would I be better off with a Raspberry Pi, and with the Pi, would the software be hard to make? (have the buttons perform their actions).
Lastly, what tools would I need to do this? Thanks.
