Music box wooden model

I got this model for Christmas and spent several hours over two days putting it together. It plays a song from the Ghibli film Castle in the Sky when you wind it up. Though the online listing proclaims 'no glue required', it not only came with glue, but most steps required gluing pieces together, which I thought was hilarious. It's a nice looking piece, but a bit finicky and not the most stable. You have to carefully cup the upper part of the bottom to turn it, because the dowels used for the stand are quite thin and won't survive long if you twist it holding the base.
