Hello everyone.
My sister approved its last matter and will soon be an engineer. So I decided I was to make something to give. Long ago told me I needed a box for you, and see some LJ models to inspire and make one.
First I did the whole box, which I found too sober, so I added some small legs. I also focus on the system of the lid. I did not want hinges, so take to make him some support and use the top of the legs, to hold it in place.
The greatest merit? He was only an inch boards, and I wanted to make it light, so use the block plane to leave all of a centimeter!
The wood we use is all cedar except for the front and back, using pine.
Thanks for looking and comments are welcome!
Greetings to all!

Unique design. There have been a lot of boxes on here, but you have still managed to find a new design. Well done !

I like your design, and it seems to work well for both loose and bagged tea. Nice thinking. The legs do add interest and function well. The grain in the top is especially beautiful. I would have added a cross divider about where the tea changes types. Your sister should be very pleased with this as a present. Keep boxing and keep posting.
