As I sit here and wait for my walnut burl to arrive from UPS. ( My first internet order of lumber, I am a bit nervous.) I thought I would share a quick picture of my new box. I normally don’t share my projects when they are incomplete unless I am doing a blog or need a little advice on how to finish up a design.
This time it is simply because I am so excited about it. This is my largest box to date. There is ruler in the picture to show scale. It is sized using the golden rectangle. The box is Bubinga, the lid is curly maple with a bubinga medallion with a birdseye maple medallion.
Thanks for taking a look. I like this size box. I think real soon I will join the tea box party. This one is just a little shallow. I didn’t think about tea bags until after it was together. I drink all of my tea from loose leaf teas so it’s not something I normally have around the house. When I thought about it I had to dig around for some old peppermint tea from last winter when my wife was sick and we were out of our normal tea.
Enough about tea. I hope you enjoy this sneak peak. Any comments are welcome as always.
