Classic Woodworking: Dovetailed Tea Box (105)
Host Tom McLaughlin is joined by Fine Woodworking’s Mike Pekovich on this episode of Classic Woodworking. Mike shares his methods for making a beautiful tea box out of the dark and exotic wenge wood. He then contrasts that with a spectacular figured birdeye maple which creates the interior pieces in the box. Along with sharing his methods for making proud dovetails and a textured surface, Mike reveals a special clasp enclosure that makes this tea box really special.
