Grease Pot – Walnut – 2018

For Season 37 of the wood wright shop, Roy Underhill reran some classic episodes.  I took this as a hint that I should catch up on past projects, while waiting for Season 38.   One of these projects was this little grease pot.   Roy uses his for mutton tallow, a traditional  lubricant for the the bottom of planes.  Its a pretty slick design.  I have tons of walnut cut-offs already at dimension from my bedside table.

It is a three step dance to open this box.

Step 1: rotate the top catch

Step 2: Slide back the second lid

Step 3: Now with clearance from the dovetail – rotate the lid

I had some left over muscle wood from this spoon – I cut off a strip and than pared it into a dovetail.
