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!!!

Absolutely stunning. If it could be adapted to beer it would be perfect.

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!
