Cubistic grease box
with rare earth magnets lock and hinge.
Now he lost it! The vintage architect has grease on his mind, and it’s all becoming a little blurry…
1. Here it is open and full of wonderful bees wax.
2. A cubic block of wood, marking the line, the sawing.
3. Two half matching holes (as well was possible).
4. Glue the magnets in place, two in level with the wood, one over, one under. Epoxy as always.
5. Making a hole.
6. Nice little family!
The lock; the magnets are simply glued in level with the wood on lit and box.
The hinge; the magnet in the lit sticks out app. 1,5mm, the magnet in the box are app. 1,5mm under.
Works surprisingly well!
Here the original mafe grease box.
Hope it can be to some inspiration,
