this is the grease box it ended up with after a little L J meeting in Copenhagen

there was some repairwork on the lid and can bee seen here
I wish I cuold say it was perfect but it far from that becourse its my first inlaywork ever
I just hope it can inspire others to try
different materials in there woodwork

Thank´s for looking

The lesson I take from this project is that pipe smoking is mandatory in Denmark.

That came out great Dennis. I like how the inlay came out. The pipe had me confused, thought maybe I was seeing a Mafe project ;)

Nice job on the GB Dennis.

JJ, the Pipe is merely there for size comparison. It is the NEW standard. Anyone posting a GB is REQUIRED to have a pipe in the pic to show the relative size of the GB.

Hi Dennis,
So now the box are finally done.
I thought also it was my own post for a while…
We need a close up, so we can see the metal inlay from Napoleon.
Congratulations with the new hand plane also.
Best thoughts,

thank´s for looking everybody it was a fun little project but very time comsuming to carve with a knife
in endgrain
none of you realy want to see a close up of the lid…LOL but if you want to see a close up on the metal
then you can see it in my how I did it

and I´m sorry to say to you L Js but the plane isn´t new just happen to be the first thing I thought could
make a good background to the Danish Grease Box and is a poor stanley nr.4 I bought 10 – 11 years ago
I still need to use about 5-10 hours on it before it is cable of any honourst work its a crap plane with plastickhandles
Oh and the pipe in the picture just happen to happen and I thought I cuold bring a smile and tease some foks :-)
and yes its a stage foto sort of but there is too much fail in it as so ghees how fast I have forgot
so much about the most simple fototechnics…oh well its a digital i´m not used to that new things
not even the tripod have I remembered this time
nope let me have the old obscura and some cemi in the dark room thats more like me…LOL

what we smoke ….....well thats a secret ….but a sort of tobaco isn´t too far from the thrueth…puff – puff

thanks once more for looking

Hi Dennis,
You make me laugh, you crazy guy from the little island.
You can do a fine job with that plane, no problem, I thought it was new, since it shine on the photo!
But yes, a tune are always welcome on those planes, and there are plenty of advice to get here on LJ.
I’m also curious! What is it that you have in that glass jar? Does it smell old ship, or oregano?
You have done a great job, and a big job on that box, so we welcome you in the grease box club, but I think I already did that when you made the plane grease box.
Best thoughts,
May the grease be with you,
