My smoke shop client commissioned some “non swivel” dugouts last week. The problem, she explained, was that the tops come loose and they spill their contents.

I made some sliding top dugouts that seemed to work well but the sliders also work loose and may spill (albeit less often).

Turning my engineering brain loose on the need I came up with a solution, the two screw top. One screw acts as a pivot, the other is removable as a lock.

Who knows what lurks inside?

The top is 1/2” thick for strength even though it is endgrain.

The seam is tight!

And with just a few quick spins of the locking screw the contents is revealed.

That’s cool and all, but I don’t know what lurks inside.
