First Tea Box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


First Tea BoxPlease 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. I have done this type of leg in the past but hadn't done a lid in this manner so I wanted to see if I could pre-finish all the interior pieces, glue it all together and use a flush trim bit to flush up the exterior of the lid. Also wanted some more practice at hand mortising hinges (these are the cheaper Rockler stop-hinges which I think are really good for the price) I drilled for the hinges just a tad off this time. I used a wipe-on poly but if I ever do this type of leg again, I will definitely either just oil or spray. Overall, I'm fairly happy with it and my husband loves it so all is good :)Thanks for looking!
