Another couple of tea boxes… my last 2 sold in the same week! The first one is a cherry and purpleheart piece that I call the Waterfall because of the beautiful figuring on it. It just reminded me of a waterfall coming out of the purpleheart. I added a little wenge and purpleheart accent to two of the sides just for interest. I bought this beautiful piece of cherry from a fellow LJ a couple of years ago and was saving it for a special project. When my tea boxes started selling, I decided to try this.
The second tea box is maple and walnut. The edge banding was made by Lorna (moonls) and me about a month ago when we were trying out all kinds of inlays and edge bandings. I particularly like this one because it is so contemporary. I chamfered the top edge of the top to give it some style.
Both Boxes are about 9 1/2 by 9 1/2 and are finished in Bush Oil. I really love the finish… Bush Oil is really a nice product (pomposity of Bill Bush not withstanding… he does make an excellent finish!).
These are going to Momo’s Food Emporium in Sandwich MA on Cape Cod this morning. Google this place if you love to LOOK at great pastry!
