A tea box made from plans in the box making book by Tony Lidgate. It is made of claro walnut and figured sycamore. Inside of the lid was left blank. A chart identifying each tea blend by compartment will be placed on this face of the lid.

Stunning piece. Both the walnut top and the inner containers look great.

I really like the work done on the finger opening for the lid – great work!!!

Just beautiful. They say nothing is absolutely perfect, that piece must be as close as you can get.

A stunning combination of timbers producing a must have box. Well done Ron. Tony Lydgate’s books have some great examples in them.

Very well done. I think I can see some influence from your furniture restoration work in this box. I will have to find a copy of his book. And I am loving the wood!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!
