About Our Imported Wood
We use both imported and domestic wood to create our products. You can choose to have your custom wood box made from a single type of wood, or you can choose to use two or more woods with different colors and grains to create a unique design for your custom wood box. Among the imported woods we use are the better known woods such as mahogany, teak, and ebony.
Here is a selection of the lesser known imported woods from which you can choose:
- Brazilian Cherry or Jatoba which is a harder wood than domestic cherry and a darker red color with an interesting grain.

Treasure boxes create microclimates for keepsakes. Keeping your treasures in a wood box protects them from rapid temperature and humidity changes, which accelerates aging and the deterioration and distortion of paper, leather, textiles, and other materials. Treasure boxes should be large enough to allow items to lie flat but should not allow items to slide around. Here are some tips for storing your keepsakes. Store photographs in polyvinyl, chloride-free polyester sleeves, wrap textiles in unbleached muslin, and make sure any other packing materials you use are acid-free. Custom treasure boxes are great for your own keepsakes or to give as gifts to new parents, newlyweds, or for any other special occasions. They can also be custom made for military ribbons and medals or any other collections of honors and awards that commemorates someone’s life.
