Another one of my box designs in textured wood .
The project is made from maple finished on the outside in spray lacquer and the inside is left unfinished because it is meant for tea bag storage or other items which I don’t want to take on the odor from the finish.
This time I removed the lid in one pic to keep everybody happy.
I am not sure what style it is so I call it my own, but if you have an idea about what style please comment !

Thanks and enjoy.

Nicely done. i like it a lot. The shape, the finish, the texturing all contrast powerfully with the unfinished interior.

In eastern europe we had something we called Kiefer. It was a lot like spoiled buttermilk.

Your project is nothing like that…

While it may be a fun exercise to stylize your work, instead, I would credit the accumulation of your life experiences and your thoughtful eye as having informed your design. Nice job!
