I built this teabox as a Christmas present for my wife. It is primarily walnut, purchased from a regional mill, with the exception of the bottom and the dividers which were made from wood that was here when we purchased the house a few years ago. As such I am unsure of the wood type. This project was my first attempt at making/ using a wood hinge. I’ve detailed the build on my blog if interested. The 4 rails making up the top are from one board in order to align the grain at the 45s as closely as possible. The finish is several coats of Amber shellac followed with 5 coats of paste wax.
Thanks for looking
