I’m almost an official member of the club – just need to mix up some grease. I’ll probably do a mixture of beeswax and mineral oil (I’d appreciate your recipes if you’ve got them).
The box is about 3” x 5” and 2” high. The base is made of bubinga and the top is curly, sappy cherry – both pieces were leftovers in my, “maybe I can make something small out of this piece one day…” box. The finish is a quick wipe down of tung oil. I did manage to find an old slotted screw to reuse and I plan to add a small magnet in the opposite corner to help keep it closed.
Oh, and this was my fist off center turning – I ended up removing two of the jaws from my chuck so that I could hold a rectangular blank.
