We’re going to visit some friends out-of-country and I made them a couple of gifts out of the workshop. The tea box is made of Texas mesquite, tiger maple on the top, and birdseye maple for the divisions. I’ve put some fake dark green leather on the bottom. It is finished with numerous coats of lacquer.

Great use of wood grains—really quite attractive.
