Mike Pekovitch Tea Box

I came across FWW art director Mike Pekovitch’s blog and immediately fell in love with his white oak tea box.

I brought a small quarter sawn white oak board when I moved the shop with the intentions of using it to build this piece. With the stock flattened and cut to length and thicknessed to 3/8″, I marked out the dovetails and set to work.

Since the tops and bottoms were quarter sawn and only around 4″ in width I choose to just glue the top and bottom on. We will see.

I cut the curly maple pieces for the interior of the box to length and shot the miters on a shooting board.


This is were the project stands. I need to soften the dovetails further and figure out this whole fuming thing.
