I used the Gary Rogowski jewelry box idea that Marc Spagnolo did with him and adapted it to a tea box. Quartersawn walnut, finger joints pinned with bamboo skewers and bread board ends on the top. I finished with 2 coats of shellac and 2 coats of fine paste wax.

Those are great! I was going to make something similar for Christmas gifts, but I didn’t have enough time. Do you have pictures of the bottom of the box? I was trying to figure out how to do the rabbet without going to the end of the fingers.

Thank you all for the nice comments. Mugsy, I did stopped grooves on the bottom, which was 1/4” walnut ply, on my router table.

Thanks Hutch. I’ll have to learn how to do a stopped groove. I appreciate it!
