10” x 6.375” x 4”

Made with Santos Mahogany and Bubinga for the panel and hinges. For the finish I started with a coat of shellac then 3 coats of Arm R Seal. Arm R Seal really darkens the wood. Picture number four is a box made from the same pieces of wood as the tea box, but with just one coat of Shellac.

The tray is removable making this box multipurpose.

Great looking box! I like the thick splines, and those wood hinges!

Nice piece of work….as always. How did you make the hinges…..finger joint?

Thanks Wrangler!, they are finger joints made by laminating two pieces together with the pivot hole cut out before gluing.

Great looking box and the hinges compliment it nicely. I heard somewhere that tea stored in a wooden container last longer and extends its flavor.

Beautiful box – I really like the lid and the wooden hinges. Some day I would like to attempt this type of hinge on my own.

Thanks for sharing.
