This is my first tea box. I made it for a friend in Portugal. It is made from Brazilian Tarara or Canary with a Bloodwood top and splines. I like the way these two woods work together. Thanks for looking. Will

Great looking Tea Box! If my wife sees this she will be after me to make her a new recipe box similar to this Tea Box. Nice choice of wood’s!

Thanks guys for all the comments. Simpsy for the lid I just glued a piece of bloodwood to the bottom of the lid that fit right into the box. This is the same way stevinmarin made the lid for his candy box in his video.
