A few views of my entry..
It’s a mystery wood, donated by a friend from his mom’s woodpile. I left
the chainsaw marks on the top and bottom, and used my bandsaw to square off the sides and slice the top. Next a forstner bit, 2”3/4” for the pot hole.
The lid’s attached with a brass shouldered screw, the hold down’s a 1/4-20 thumbscrew with a modified end..
ground to make a wedging effect as you turn rather than screwing it in. overall it’s about 6” long by 4” wide and about 3.5 high. The grease is more of a hard wax, a mix of parafin canning wax and old, old bee’s wax. The bottom has one of my brand markings, my initials. Made the iron from a file cabnet’s guide, bent the end after cutting off the threads, flattened the top of the hook and carved the initials with a dremel.
