This is a gift for my wife. Measures 7 × 7 × 5 inches and has 4 compartments for tea bags. Hinges are Soss style. I must have messed up the alignment of the hinge mortices because the box doesn’t close all the way. That’s probably a good thing since neither the box nor the lid are square. Dang, making these little boxes is hard. It’s not up to par but it’s shiny at least. Finished with Danish oil. Made with pallet wood and ekki cutoffs I got at work. The colors are gorgeous. Too bad nothing fits nicely together. The black marks inside are nail holes from the pallets. I couldn’t hide all of them. The dividers and bottom are mahogany, I think, which came from the back of an antique bureau I refurbished last year. Anyway I’m sure my wife will love it. She’s very forgiving.
