While letting the glue dry a bit on Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu ... I decided to make a little grease box.
 

 

 
Made of mahogany, it measures 4-1/2” long, 1-1/2” wide, and 1-1/4” high.
 

 
All comments and questions welcomed. Thanks for looking.

Nice. No latch to keep it shut while it’s in your apron, but perhaps it doesn’t need it?

Interesting. What king of grease did you use?

Thanks, Dave. No latch … the lid is rather tight. No apron either, will just sit on the bench.

Thanks, Tom. I use a mixture of beeswax, turpentine, and linseed oil. I also have a grease pot under my Hand Crank Drill Press.

A useful little box. I use mine to wax the threads of screws to make them easier to insert.

What? No double lid with dovetail lock Ron? Cheater ;-). Very cool box. I like the coffin shape.

The glue was dry enough in 45 minutes so I opted for a simple wood screw … thanks, Kenny!

Thanks, Ivan … and a coffin it is. As a funeral director I though what better shape to use for a grease box. The piece of mahogany used was actually my first attempt at gadrooning …
