Woodworking: Curly Maple & Lacewood Tea Box

3 min read

I have a mess in my pantry! I have so many different teas and they are all over the place. It’s time to get some organization going. To start, let’s make a tea box to store the tea bags.

I was recently in the big box store and came across this piece of maple. I don’t typically get hard wood from them, but this particular piece caught my eye. Even without finish this piece had so much visible curl that I couldn’t pass it up. I bought the whole piece.

I hope you enjoy this video. Please let me know if there is a project you’d like to see me make and I will do my best to do it. Thank you for all the support you have shown me and the channel!
