Tea Caddy

548

Hand cut curly maple dovetailed tea caddy with a diamond inlay banding on the lid. Dyed the curly maple with a early American maple dye then sanded down, and finished with a reddish brown dye. The finish I used is waterlox original finish.

Matt,

Wow! You certainly got that grain to pop! Thanks for giving us the details of how you did it. Very nice!

Very will done.
Who’s dye did you use, was it a powder or liquid dry?
I really would like to duplicate it on some of my work.
Thank you for sharing!
