I had this picture of the old Abdel secret grease box ( from Mads) on my workbench for quite a while and then I found a piece of Osage Orange left over from a project on the other bench. I put the two together and made this secret grease box with a few changes. I thought it would look better as finished small treasure box and I changed the locking mechanism to a round brass pin that drops into the slide to lock it shut and you have to flip it and give it a tap to drop the pin back into the hole in the top to open the top. To secure it without fasteners showing, I used a brass pin in a blind hole in the top and bottom with a recess for a 4 penny nail to retain it into the bottom. I puttied the holes over so you can disassemble it if you really had to.
It is dry Osage Orange and finished with Deft gloss lacquer.
