I was going to make a little grease box after seeing a few on here, but i got the idea to make a matchbox using the same design. The wood is bubinga and the dovetail is ebony. This projects was done completely by hand.
The finish is blo with a few coats of my own brew wax. Funny thing is that when you slide the first cover you see the striker for the matches, my original thinking was to glue a strip of sandpaper to strike the matches so i tried
80, 120, 150, 200, 300, 400 grit none of them would light the match!!!!!!!! then i cut the cardboard of the box and glued it as you see on the pics and it works fine!!! The reason behind the box is that i have a woodstove and this will look better then a little cardboard box next to the stove. And surely will get the attention of a few people.
