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