I turned this pill box out of a piece of scrap zebrawood from an abandoned project from about two years ago. The zebrawood wound up splitting so I could not finish the abandoned project anyway. But I probably have enough scrap pieces now to make at least 10 of these. Next on the list is one thats a little longer as a toothpick holder. The finish on this is just paste wax only.

I didnt have jaws on my chuck that were small enought to grip this so I cut a taper on the end of the wood and stuck it in where the spur drive goes. It worked really well it never budged once but still I made sure I didnt forget my safety gear for a second.

(lid on) 2 1/2” tall 7/8” diameter
(inside) 5/8” bore 1 3/4” deep
