Yesterday Mafe posted a grease box with the hope that other LJ’s will follow….. Here is my version – Mk I. I only had about an hour today to come up with something. The dark timber is Imbuia, the inlays, Forest Alder. After fitting the brass screw that forms the hinge, the lid looked odd to me. I fitted a “fake” screw on the opposite side for balance, just a sawn off screw head glued in place. The screws are too large, but it was the only ones I had today.
I’ve dreamt up Mk II with a more complicated hinge system….. when I have more time…although this one will serve me well…
PS. I kept my promise, Mads. Now I also have one!
