This is a projected that my wife requested. She keeps her teas in a cabinet that is just a little too high for her, so she wanted a box to keep on the counter. It is made of cherry with a spanish oak stain,(her choice, not mine} and finished with wipe on poly and wax. I did have to first apply a one pound cut of shellac to prevent blotching.

Very nice box. Great design and if the stain keeps the wife happy, then it is great too!

Keep it up.

Very nice. I can understand Sally’s stain choice. It gives the box a very Asian look—more like a lacquered box. The handle is right on to complete that look. So appropriate for tea in my mind.

Did you also make the handle? Very nice box. The finish is indeed fitting.
