Made of an unknown Mahogany, finish is a coat of tung oil and then a beeswax-olive oil mixture.
Design inspired by a fellow lumberjock, and taken from Roy Underhill.
This is a pretty cool little and easy project to make, i definitely recommend trying this one out.

Hi,
Welcome to the GBOC.
(grease box owners club).
You made a wonderful little box there, and I promise you, you will enjoy the glide.
Perhaps we should make that GBOC blog where people can turn in when they make a box, and post their image.
Really cool,
best of thoughts,
MaFe

Damn, Mafe beat me to it! He might be the President of the GBOC, but I am the founder member!

So, another welcome!

Kindlingmaker, the double lid is used to form a sort of lock, the top lid opens to allow the bottom lid to slide back and over. Here is a video to explain better.
