This dovetailed tea box was made as a Christmas gift for my wife. I adapted a plan that was featured in Fine Woodworking issue #269 (July/August 2018). The box is made of cherry, and the liner and knob are oak. To see a closer copy of the original design, check out Metolius's version.

I really like the clean look this has and the pull compliments the piece perfectly…very well done.
