We must have had 10 or 12 boxes of various tea, every time someone wanted tea every box ended up on the counter. I was truly surprised by the number of boxes of tea we own…

Newly discovered clutter / organizing problem + quarantine + extra cherry lumber = get in the shop and make something….

The box is made from cherry with a figured maple book matched top with maple dividers finished with maple splines for strength. I have a couple more polyurethane coats to apply on the outside of the box and it will be complete.

Dimensions are 4 1/4 high, 10 1/2 deep, exactly 12 wide. I tried to estimate a new box of tea and size the compartments to fit them.

James – very nice. Really like the dividers. I have made 3 but much smaller. Sold one of them too! I think a tea box is a great project. You did a nice job. Thanks for posting

Very nicely done. I like your design much better than one I made recently. I may have to upgrade!
