About our Boxes …

The variety of color, texture, and figure of wood is a constant source of amazement. Some of the most stunning and beautiful woods are not suitable for furniture and cabinetry, yet they are truly nature’s art at its finest. In 2007, we began making boxes simply to showcase the beauty and variety of wood from around the world. The boxes are the medium for the true art; the wood itself.

Our boxes are simple in form so as not to detract from the material used for their construction. We do not use stains or dyes and take great care to produce finishes which allow the character and the beauty of the wood become the focal point, not the box. Each box is handcrafted, constructed and finished to withstand the test of time and use to become a treasured heirloom for generations. The finish is hand rubbed to produce a deep, rich, finish that is silky smooth to the touch.

An information sheet is included with each box that identities the wood it is constructed of, where the wood originated from, and interesting facts such as how the coloration occurs or how the figuring present in the wood formed. We will often have very specific information such as the exact location where the tree was harvested, the age of the tree or lumber (some is hundreds of years old), and in many cases, the rarity of the wood.
