WESTERN MAPLE AND WALNUT TEA BOX
A beautiful Western Maple and Walnut wooden Tea box. The interior is divided into sections for a selection of teas but may also be used as a jewelry box for earrings and small items or keepsakes.
Robert Jakobsen is an artisan native to Nanaimo, British Columbia where he salvages much of the wood used in his work. Logs which are considered to have little market value (e.g. destined for firewood) are milled with a portable band saw mill. Robert works with local woods to illustrate the diversity and beauty of British Columbia's forest resources and the need for more attention to resource management. This tea box is finished with four coats of rubbed polyurethane making for a very durable and attractive finish. The dividers may be removed from the box if desired.
Length 9.5 inches by width 4.5 inches by height 1.5 inches.
