This is a Mike Penkovich design from FWW 269.

I cut the dovetails by hand however. Lots of little lessons along the way in this project!

Unfortunately (?) I live with a bunch of tea connoisseurs who only drink loose leaf tea so there won’t be any tea bags in this one.

Looks pretty good, doesn’t appear to be wire brushed?

Very nice. For the record I drink loose leaf and tea bags. I don’t discriminate. :)

You did a nice job with the tea box. The dovetails and finish are top shelf. I saved that copy and plan on building one.
