  1. Wifes Tea Box with my first hand cut dovetails

    This is my first small box made with hand cut dove tails, I definitely need some practice. The sides are figured Maple, the lid frame is Walnut and the top and bottom panel is Birds Eye Maple. My goal was to use only hand tools but I ended up re-sawing the stock to expedite the project in time...
  2. "No Privacy" cherry tea cabinet, wall cabinet

    This is a tea cabinet I made on a whim. It's very whimsical lol. I was going for a sunburst effect with the ash slats on the front. Light in the middle, darkening towards the outside. Lots of detailed handwork in this project (my dovetails are getting tighter, which makes me happy). It was a lot...
  3. Arnie's Tea Box

    This is a tea box that I built for my sailing friend Arnie. He was a career navy sailor before retirement and spent time in Canada's sailing embassador "Oriole". He has also done considerable offshore sailing on his own so the theme of the box is fitting. And oh yes, he's a tea drinker. One of...
  4. Walnut and Maple Teabox

    There is a funny story behind this tea box. I was commissioned by one of my wife's cousins to make a tea box for his girlfriend for a valentines day gift. I was pretty excited as it was my first ever box and I've always looked for a reason to make one but never have had a good one. So the...
  5. When-gey, Wenge What Went Wrong?

    What went wrong? A few things. What went right? A few things. I beveled the lids on the table saw before I selected and fitted the hinges. I couldn't get the hinge mortises lined up and when I finally did the screws were too long and poked through the top. What to do? What to do? I cut a...
  6. Tea Box

    This is a tea box that I made for my wife a while back, over a year ago actually. It was the second box with splines that I made, it was also the last time I used splines, lol. I like splines, and they are easy to do, I just haven't had another use for them since this box. The wood is something...
  7. Boxguy Handles A Squiggle-Topped Teabox

    Story: I needed a new take on a tea box. This one is designed to be moved from one place to another, hence the handles. I had a request for a tea box specifically designed to be walked around a table to let customers select tea bags and then returned to a counter. It was to be used in a...
  8. Cocobolo Tea

    I've made a few tea boxes but my friend wanted dark wood. I had a nice piece of cocobolo in the pile and used a scrap piece of birds-eye maple for the top. Finished with TWW's simple varnish finish with a coat of Renaissance wax.
  9. Boxguy's Internal Focus

    Pictured: A medium sized tea chest (14×6 1/2×5 1/2) with crotch mahogany top, American walnut sides, maple corner splines, and internal dividers made from a Venetian blind. This tea chest features a mortised continuous hinge, chain pocket, and lift-out sweetener caddy. Focus: In this post I...
  10. Tea box for my daughter.

    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…...
  11. Winged Tea Box

    This is my attempt to try Andy's Art Deco Winged Box he so generously gave us a Tutorial on. Thanks, Andy! Mine is Walnut, 12"x4"x3", with the lid framed for an unusual Birds-Eye Walnut top that is rather showy. I didn't curve the top cut, as I wanted that wood to be the first impression. I...
  12. Tea box

    This is a tea box comissioned by my favorite barista at a local coffee shop. The top and interior dividers are highly figured cherry and the carcass is walnut. Finish is thinned BLO and wiping varnish.
  13. A box for tea.

    This is another commission.. a tea box… made from Narra [New Guinea Rosewood] with Purple Heart splines… the insert in the top is Huon Pine and the dividers are European Walnut…small finger grooves on the side to enable the top to be removed… it is a piston fit… What do you think of this… Mike…
  14. Black Tea

    Another in the series of simple tea boxes. Goncalo Alves with ebonized maple top finished with spray lacquer (satin over gloss) and polished with renaissance wax. Goncalo Alves has some interesting streaks on an orange-ish field. The best side on this one is the back because it got chipped...
  15. Tea Box

    I made this tea box for my mom's 80th birthday. It is made from some leftover pieces of mahogany and curly maple. It was made completely from rough sawn lumber, dimensioned to thickness with hand planes and all joints hand cut with saws, chisels and hand planes. No machines in my shop. It...
  16. Granny's Tea Box Series

    The Granny's Tea Box Series The Granny's Tea Box puzzle design pays homage to my Granny. She introduced me to the joy of puzzles at a very young age (probably to keep me out of trouble for 5 minutes), and of course loved drinking tea herself. Serendipitously, the pint-sized tea boxes, my love...
  17. First Tea Box

    Please excuse the dust inside the box! So this is my first take at a tea box, I made it for my husband. The box is maple, lid and legs are canary wood and the splines, bottom and handle are jatoba. The dividers are maple and cherry and I mortised the maple pieces into the box for stability...
  18. Walnut and Maple Tea Box

    This is my first attempt at box making since my 8th grade shop class. It is also my first serious attempt at finishing. This tea box is made for my wife. She has been persistently reminding me that all of my projects are for my shop or our family and friends. It was about time I made her...
  19. Boxguy's 6-Sided Tea Box

    Pictured here are several views of Carolie's six-sided tea box. Problem: How can I craft a unique shape that would minimize the footprint of this box while still offering storage for 36 teabags, 8 handcrafted British teaspoons, and an assortment of sweeteners? Sometimes the best designs...
  20. Tea Box and Serving Tray

    I was pretty well decided that for my mom's birthday this year I was making a tea box of some kind. She loves her tea. And while she uses some fancy ball and loose leaves to make her own, she always keeps a bunch of bags around for company. So I felt like she should have a nice way to...
