Project Information

Wood And Materials Used
Birch and African Mahogany
Tools Used
Saws, Chisels, Hand planes


I made a strop and its case. This kind of things helps me organize my tools to work on a small table.

The case has magnets and they are strong enough to hold the weight of the case & strop/compound.
The strop is slightly raised so I can use it just by opening the lid and it's for the lid to be aligned along with the pin, too.

The saw marks inside the box hopefully proves I put an extra effort to saw a little deeper than needed... it's never perfect.

A strop is something I need to obtain, been just using my jeans. Having it mounted to a base solves a lot of issues I have thought about. In a nice box is bonus!

I don't think I can come up with a better design knife than your master piece with custom calligraphy name art on it... I'm looking forward to seeing the real master piece from the participants!

Thank you and yes, it's just the base for the green one according to my wife, haha! The thing is, I tend to mind too much small things and I know what I feel a problem is nothing to people in general:)

I like this a lot. My strop tends to collect sawdust and other debris on top of it so I always have to clean it off before use. Your lid is a perfect solution.

I'm glad that you liked it! I would love to see a variation made by skilled people like you!
