This box is in a Japanese style with sliding top. The finger joint hinge was added just for fun. Not really necessary, but it allows access to the wax without having to fully remove the lid. (comes in very handy because i seem to have a fondness for misplacing lids of things)
The wax is a mixture of Beeswax, mineral oil, carnauba wax, and lemongrass oil (gives it a nice fresh smell even though the beeswax by its self is amazing)
Box is made of 1/4 teak with finger joint construction with 1/8” teak pins. Glued together using Titebond III
The faint mess that is seen on the inside of the lid is a failed attempt at using some new Oil paint pens to do a logo with. It was more pronounced before the finish was put on it. Kind of a cool halo effect so i didn’t sand it all the way off.
Teak box: 1 3/4” x 2 3/4” x 5” Holds close to 4oz of wax
