ABOUT ME

I am passionate about the things that we hold dear. I am obsessed  with our memories, our history and a sacred place to keep them. A time capsule we will pass down to our family. 

OUR PROCESS

My Promise

 

My word is my Bond. I pride myself on being a master craftsmen in my industry, skilled artisan in wood and finishing methods. I use time-honored techniques that can only be performed by hand to ensure you receive my finest work.

My brand was established in South Carolina in 1995. Dissatisfied with the quality of items available, I set out to craft products of uncompromising standards by using only the finest wood available.

Since 1995, my standards of quality have never wavered. My products are made of only the finest woods: Black Walnut, Mahogany, Sapele, Purple Heart, Birds-eye Maple and Leopard Wood sourced from around the globe.

HOW I DO IT

  I am dedicated to crafting extraordinary keepsake boxes. I continually research the history, mechanics, dynamics and physics of wood in order to cultivate a deeper understanding of what makes it work and how I can continue to advance my work.

MY WORK

Additional Information

 I handcraft bespoke boxes for those who wish to experience the exhilaration of possessing a truly well made item fashioned to the highest standard. Each commission begins with a personal consultation. The resultant choice of model, specifications, materials and options combine to make your box truly one-of-a-kind – tailor-made, exclusively for you. My goal is to make sure you're not just pleased but ecstatic with your purchase.
