Micro grease box
Do not make this at home, it might get lost, even before you finish it…

Tataaaaaaa….
I prestent to you all; the greasebox for a Stanley 101, or a very little LJ.

The ruler are cm.

Ok, when I could make a new version Roy Underhills, then I also had to make a new version of mine...
(And I allways say less is more).

The truth is, that it was made as a present (a key ring with a little love letter), for my beloved Caroline, The new lit are made from Buffolo horn.

[Ohhh yes, and Div calls me Precident of GBOC = Grease Box Owners Club here ].

I made a blog about the grease box story.

_Hope it can be to some inspiration, or at least a Sunday laugh,

Best of smiles and thoughts,
MaFe

If you make another one, one could use them as a contact case. Also, I’m gonna need contacts to see this thing. Congratulations on stealing the spotlight from the penmakers and the cuttingboard makers with your grease boxes. I’m gonna have to jump on the bandwagon and build one of these.

Well done, MaFe.

if you want the lid to be less fragile, you can glue a thin layer of the same timber crossgrain. this will make it a homemade plywood!

Well Small plane Small grease box I suppose. Nicely done, the key chain idea is a neat one.

This is too funny. Well done. :) But if your next one is constructed entirely of 2 toothpicks, I am sending psychological help .. of course where I would find that I do not know. ;)

Ha ha….now you leave me laughing, Mads!

If I still owned my dremel, I would love to make one about half that size to compete in your ‘Micro-division’ of grease boxes. Alas my dremel and many other tools got lost in my move to Sweden…. someone, somewhere should feel very lucky!

Great idea to make a keychain box that isn’t so large.

“God dag” Mr. President. “Undskyld”, but I can’t see it! Hey someone, bring me a magnifying glass please!

Maybe you should buy a makro lens for your camera, so we can see the next one better…

Hi there,
Jamie, I love to make people smile, so thank you for letting me. And thank you for your sweet PM – I look forward.
Cranesgonewild, contact case not a bad idea, exept I use klasses and need a hammer then to make them fit in… Yes, it could be interesting to stop the waves, but I guess itit can run parallel…
Moshel, clever idea, thank you.
And yes I try to compensate, when you have something very big – you need to make something very small…
Steve, perhaps I made you smile, but you made me laugh, I think I’ll call it my sallery box!
Chris, I’ll post it when done.
Sras, yes you will be allowed then.
Swirt, I cant answer you now, I have a appointment at the mental department, and ar equite buissy, but perhaps I can ask my other me to write you!
Dennis, I can be really dangerous also, and I drive a Vespa from 1963!
Rick, yes that would be something, a shame with the tools, but yes, lets be happy for the guy!
Div, ‘are you there? Div! Div! I cant hear you, hello’ – hmmmm he must be out in the bush!
Yes I nedd a psy. my grass is so long you can’t imagine!
Best thoughts to all,
Mads

LOL. You’ll need to make a very small spatula to get the grease out, Mads.
