I just picked up a decently-sized, hinged wooden box at Michael's that I plan on turning into a wicked jack-in-the-box. I'd like to be able to make it open and have a creepy clown mask pop out of the box, but, unfortunately, don't have a clue as to how to accomplish this, since I am anything but a handyman and know nothing about electronics.
I've tried searching here, as well as on the Internet in general, for info on how to create a jack-in-the-box, with no luck whatsoever. If anyone who knows what they are doing could possibly offer some advice (dumbed down for me, please
), it would be greatly appreciated; I'd like to keep it as simple as possible, yet still have it be effective (music and a turning crank would be nice, but are not absolutely necessary). Muchas gracias
