Really nice work on the box and great heart on the gifting of it.Greasy Business (wasn't mine, but it is NOW)
Did not post this as a project although it IS a woodworking finished project - yet not made by me.
I got a little package in the mail yesterday, and inside was awaiting quietly this little gem:
made and sent to me by none other than LJ blackcherry
Thank you very much Wilson! This will be allocated to my tool cabinet and shall be put to use often. My main uses for this would be to wax my handplanes metal bodies and soles after use to keep it from developing surface rust (used T9 and wd40 till now, but this would be better) and make them smoother (less friction) during use. Also for driving screws (makes the screw drive smoother and easier), and similar applications.
the substance inside is beeswax mixed with mineral oil, I was really surprised at the stiffness of it as I thought it would be softer. It seems that the hardness of it will make it easier to use compared to a more pasty and gooey substance.
So perhaps not officially a cult member, but I definitely can say 'I got me one' and more importantly, have a very valuable shop accessory.
Thanks for reading,
