My Mom wanted a box for her tea. Small enough to fit on her kitchen counter.

Walnut, maple & Mahogany. Finished with Danish Oil.

Man…....that is beautiful. Very nicely done. Love the woods you used and how you aligned them too.

How rare to find a genuine tea caddy designed to hold both the tea and a tea cup and saucer. In America this practice of have a tea caddy is said to have started in Colonial times when tea and fine china were both extremely expensive. It was considered polite for visiting ladies to bring their own fine china cup with them when they came by for tea. They would bring their own supply of tea as well so as not to burden their hostess with the expense of serving them tea. Keeping the cup saucer, and tea all in a cozy was practical because carriage rides were on rough roads and the bumps could be hard on travelers and would be equally hard on fine china.

Nice design and even nicer thought to make the gift.

It’s quite striking and is a real eye catcher; I’m sure that she must have been very pleased with it. Congratulations.
