A chabako utensil box is used when a tea ceremony takes place somewhere other than the teacher’s own place. Sometimes the teacher will use a Chashitsu owned by someone else to teach a Japanese tea ceremony lesson or to perform a tea ceremony for guests. Chabako boxed are usually made of light wood to keep the weight to a minimum. The wood used for the box is usually not liked by insects and will therefore not come near and damage any utensils stored inside the Chabako (From Japanese-tea-ceremony.net).
