Tea Box

Item: Tea Box

Materials: Eastern Curly Maple and Padouk

Construction Details: While boxes seem deceptively simple, they are difficult to make perfectly square. I designed this box to contrast the red hue of Padouk against the white Eastern Curly Maple. A difficult combination as the red dust can easily penetrate and stain the Maple pores if great care is not taken. The box is fully mitred with contrasted splines.
