We have ordered through Relic Wood a few times now. The boxes make perfect retirement gifts. They are unique and very well crafted! Dealing with the artist staff has always been easy. They are honest about what works best, and will get you your proofs quickly. Thank you so much, Relic Wood! We will continue to purchase from you.

Incredible craftsmanship & quality! WOW! Thee best choice for my friend's retirement keepsake chest. Ordering was easy, communication from Project Manager was flawless & fast! I loved seeing the proofs but was so much better than expected when it arrived!! Packaging was on point; such care of the shipping. My purchase came earlier than drop dead date needed! Placing accoutrements was easy on the felt backing. The tray w/images were sharp/clear & plaque was etched beautifully. Definitely will let everyone know of this company! Outstanding!!

Wanted to do something special & memorable for our Son & DIL's 5th Wedding Anniversary-Traditional Wood. Had a memory chest made with photos imbedded in the wood. Left my request a bit late, but the team was responsive and turnaround was so fantastic we received in plenty of time for the actual date. The price was reasonable given the excellent quality and the ordering process was easy to understand. I had questions which were promptly answered. So Very Pleased!

Veteran Owned & Operated

We take great pride that we are a Veteran owned & operated small family business and not some big corporation. Our priorities are simple.

#1 – We will always be handmade in America . . . by American craftsmen.

#2 – Taking excellent care of our customers, our employees, and building quality products will always come before profit. We may never get rich, but we will sleep well at night.

#3 – During our business hours you can always get a real person on the phone to answer your questions (hope you don’t mind our friendly Southern Draw).

We welcome you to watch this video to get a behind the scenes look at the tremendous amount of detail that goes into our craft.


Vintage Woodworking

Hands on is how we approach crafting our wooden boxes. Every item we make, from assembly all the way to packaging and shipping, is meticulously done by hand. Our people know that each gift we build is meant to be a conversation piece, and will have great sentimental value to it’s recipient. Meaningful employment is important to us.

Real Graphic Artists on Staff!

Each custom order is assigned to one of our talented graphic designers who will assist our customers until the artwork proofs are approved and the custom order is sent to production. We build nothing without your approval, so you know you are going to love it when it arrives.

The result is something completely unique . . . a gift you will never find in any box store!
