Made/Gave this Tea Box to my Aunt for Christmas 2018 and my kids found a bunch of tea to fill it with. Unfortunately in the rush to finish it before Christmas, I failed to get any finished pictures. (DOH!).

Walnut case, spalted maple top and maple splines and dividers.

Walnut is from a tree the guys at work took down and I had milled.

Jealous of your milling skills! The surfaces and lines are so freaking clean – you’ve got serious chops!

Thank you. I seem to do just fine on these small projects. Give something bigger and all bets are off.

That spalt plays well off that Walnut. I liked the box form and then I hit the third pic. Gotta love interior dividers. It matters little how they are laid out.. Their presence says it is a finished box. Such a nice touch.

Thanks for posting. Congrats on your 3.

These pics were pre hinge install. Don’t remember what kind, I think it was a stop hinge of some sort.
