I’ve made a few tea boxes but my friend wanted dark wood. I had a nice piece of cocobolo in the pile and used a scrap piece of birds-eye maple for the top. Finished with TWW’s simple varnish finish with a coat of Renaissance wax.

Very nice. I have been thinking of making a tea box as well some time, so this was a great surprise to see when I opened lumberjocks. Thanks for posting.

This is a very nice looking tea box. I really like the contrast. I need to make one, or a couple of these. The tea collection we have would need one as big as a foot locker. Thanks for the post.
