This is a teabox for the woman who gave me the sycamore wood. I need to thank Tokolosi up front as I followed his example on the corners.

The box itself is sycamore and the corners and hinges are walnut. I am gonna “wedge” two dividers in it tomorrow and fill it with different teas and give it to her on Thursday.

The box measures 12×7 x 4 and is finished with Howards Feed-n-Wax.

Thanks for the looks and comments.

Like the look. Nice contrast and well built.

A tea box is a great idea never thought of it. Looks real nice, I like the way you did the joints gives them a nice aesthetic value. How did you hing the top?

Wow Jay that is gorgeous. Love your hinges!! Great solution to that little overhang in the back.

Very nice use of contrasting woods, bet she’ll love it. I need to build some gifts for those who have given me wood.

Well done. You certainly are advancing nicely in your woodworking abilities. How about a close up of your hinge design?

I like those hinges as well. I also like the way you worked in those legs. Very nice looking box,

Very slick. A different joinery method on the corners that is really pretty nice with those wood combos, and the nifty hinges are nice touches

  • Everyone * The credit for the “corner” idea goes to Tokolosi. I copied his example of a box that he posted last week.

Excellent scrapwood or palletwood project. My spell check is telling me scrapwwod and palletwood are not legitimate words….....someone needs to call Webster’s! I think there are enough of us that agree they are.
