This Tea Caddy was one of the projects in semester 2 of my Hand Tool School. It was a lot of fun and was used to apply the skills taught that semester on cutting curves, wide miters, and sticking mouldings. I’m really happy with how it came out and was glad I decided to go ahead and add the secret drawer. Of course it wouldn’t be a Hand Tool School project unless it was made entirely by hand.
The side slides up in a friction fit groove to expose the drawer hidden under a false bottom.
The finish is Genuine Mahogany dyed with General Finishes Vintage Cherry Dye followed by 4 coats of shellac.
