Another in the series of simple tea boxes. Goncalo Alves with ebonized maple top finished with spray lacquer (satin over gloss) and polished with renaissance wax. Goncalo Alves has some interesting streaks on an orange-ish field. The best side on this one is the back because it got chipped. I beveled the bottom to remove the chip.

Nice. Where did you find those hinges? they look like they stay open at about 95 degrees, like Brusso but with a round barrel. or are my eyes playing tricks on me? Thanks! goncolo is actually pretty nice

Tim, that’s a fine looking box. Simple but elegant.
