Thanks for all the positive feedback. There is a huge need for a tea cabinet above my work bench, other than that I can hope.

I still like the design and the function. i just didn’t know if there was a market, out there for a “tea cabinet”.maybe you could put one on consignment at a tea shop or a peets coffee.just a thought.

This looks great. Sorry for bringing up the old post, but it really looks a lot like a design I have been kicking around in my head as a Christmas gift to my wife who drinks a lot of tea – some looseleaf, some bagged. This is my first LJ post, so I apologize if it’s bad form to ask this but: how were you able to bend the sugar maple piece for the door? I don’t see it screwed into any integral forms. Did you just soak it and bend it on a form? It looks like a 1/8” piece, which all I would expect to have bent at that steep an angle for this. Anyway, beautiful piece regardless. Really nice choices. Enjoy!

Hey Mcrouse sorry about the late response. To create the door panel I use a technique similar to creating wine barrels called coopering. I took my 4/4 maple plank and ripped it into staves. Then I angled the edges of these staves to create the curve i desire. Then glue and clamp. Then with my two round bottom planes I round out and smooth the inside. Let me see if I cant dig up some pictures.

The only pictures I have of the process are the clamping photos.
