Made from antique quarter sawn white oak. I have no idea how old this wood is. It was components of a very old armoire that my daughter obtained for free off of Craigslist. The family that owned it had decided to get rid of it but said it was well over 100 yrs old. The armoire was not salvageable, but most of the wood was. I used a mini-door rail & stile bit set to make the lid. It worked great and was to scale. I made the box for my daughter so she could have something to remember one of the first pieces of furniture she obtained all on her own….even though it didn’t last long. The box holds 6 kind of tea bags, with half lapped dividers, brass hinges and the corners are box/finger jointed. To keep the beautiful quarter sawn grain visible I just applied some coats of furniture wax.
