Tea caddy

 

 

  This is a very cute tea caddy. It can of course be used for other purposes, and being so attractive, it will decorate just anywhere. The text written around the caddy reads ¨ The cup that cheers ¨. The pattern is based in an old English design from the beginning of the XX century that I have entirely reconstructed in the computer.

 The pattern has been designed to use 3/16, 1/8 and 1/16 inches wood or 2, 4 and 6 mm wood. By scaling the pattern appropriately any other wood widths can also be used. These are the measures of the caddy depending on the wood width you use:

  Height Diameter
3/16, 1/8 and 1/16 in. wood 8,33 in. 6,5 in.
6, 4 and 2 mm. wood 26,6 cm. 20,8 cm.

  Please note that this pattern is registered and copyrighted. If you would like to have it I offer it for 9 € plus shipping. The pattern is computer made, which provides total precision, and nicely printed for convenient scrolling. Click here to buy this pattern. Write me to info@finescrollsaw.com for any questions.

  This picture has kindly been sent by Boris Radovskiy from the USA. The walnut and cherry he has used for his tea caddy create a staring contrast that attracts the attention. In this box has preferred removing the motto, instead the six faces of the caddy are identical.

    This picture has kindly been sent by Tom Cocks from the USA. He has used Padauk and maple for this excellent result. About the finish, he wrote me: ¨ It is finished with three coats of Polyurethane Semi Gloss. I use a Sata spray gun for many Fret projects. It does not over fill in small lines, is fast, even and will not run, if applied properly. I spray a first sanding sealer coat of Poly diluted ever so little with mineral spirits. This dries faster and penetrates more. Let dry for a day or more then sand. I like sanding pad. Apply second coat of Poly, wait about half hour, but not longer than tacky and spray the third coat. The third coat will chemically combine with the first, but not enough to cause running. This link to Sata spray guns explains all the adjustments and specs. The minijet 4 HVLP is expensive, but has many virtues inexpensive guns just can not match for the type of work we do. ¨

 This picture has been sent by Noel Gibbs from Australia: ¨I decided to have a flat lid instead of the scrolled one in the pattern. The reason for this is that I will be using the caddy every day for my tea bags (as opposed to having it purely as an ornament I mean) and I am very clumsy with container lids, I always seem to drop them. I would imagine the fretwork on the lid would break off very quickly in these circumstances. I used brush box for the main part of the body and camphor laurel for the overlays. ¨
