This is another tea box similar to others I’ve made recently. Lid is black palm the sides are cherry and the front and back are birch. The egg crate dividers are poplar.

Excellent. I like the mix of woods here, simple, yet complex all in one. Something about the pinned sides that I really like too.

Nice job, and thanks for posting.

The lid lift is made from a porcupine quill. The sides are pinned with bamboo dowels.

This just keeps getting cooler, and cooler. Porcupine quill, now who uses that? Just awesome….. All I knew on the pinned sides is they were neatly placed with a lighter wood/plant, whatever Bamboo is… I am not even sure if it’s the material. The butted corners, sans any obvious joinery on a frontal look allow for such a nice transition from the Cherry sides, and highlight the Birch, it just looks clean. Combo of the species used is Grand Slam territory.

Went straight to my favorites.

Nice looking project Bondo!

Another good looking box. Lots of little design elements that catch the eye and some really subtle stuff like the slightly rounded tops on the sides with the flat top.
