Shapening stone box
the greasebox type.

Hi there,

In these STAY HOME times, I thought it was time to make a wee project, where I combined tools and projects. Like this I could get to try out my new router and also use my small flex shaft router, for the giraffe bone butterfly inlay, all this to make a small box for a sharpening stone, that was a gift from a dear friend.

You can read more in the blog:

1. Sharpening stone box.
2. Hmmmmmmmmm.
3. Trying out the new router and loving it.
4. Splitting the lid.
5. Mine flex shaft router.
6. And some hand tools.

Hope it can be to some inspiration, perhaps even a box…

Best thoughts,

Love the grease type box. I agree, these days are the best to do those things that otherwise you may not have done. It’s sure better than watching T/V all day.

Funny, was thinking about building a grease box yesterday in the shop but the new lathe bench build took all my extra time away, yours turned very nice!

Nice box. Congrats on the Top 3. I expect you have quite a collection of them by now ;-)

Mads, I just love getting new tools and the learning curve that follows. Looks like you had a few bumps in that curve.
And yes most of us are stay at home workers now so we have to make the best of it.

Stay well my friend.

How very Danish of you, Mads. Love the butterfly closure.
