This ambrosia maple and walnut tea box is my first attempt at a continuous grain box. The top and bottom panels are book-matched walnut. There are slots for boxes and individual bags of tea. It’s finished in Zinnser sealcoat dewaxed shellac.

Wow. Beautifully done. The grain wrap is spot on and the whole project is full of thoughtful details.

Good job on the grain wrap and the box itself. Very nice. It needs an engraved brass plate like an award on the top! LOL

Beautiful work!
The wood is great and the details really top off a great design.

Very nice work. Ambrosia gives you a great flow to wrap.

Peter,
Thanks, glad you like it. The blocks in the back are to hold the screws from the hinges. I should have put a band the whole way across instead of just the blocks. The table it’s sitting on is a project I posted a few days ago.

Brian, this is a lovely box. I particularly like the woods you chose. Just by way of sharing information, you might want to consider this style of lift for your boxes. Have you considered rounding the corners of your boxes? It helps show off the grain in a wrap around and it makes construction easier. You have a great eye for the beauty in wood. Keep boxing and keep posting.
