Testimonial by Kelli Kelly – I cannot tell you how absolutely thrilled we are with our custom military box! The folks at Relic Wood were amazing to work with, from the design phase through to the finished product. My husband was moved by his retirement box and everyone who has seen it has been impressed with the detail and quality of work. I am insistent in my recommendations to others – I don’t think you can find an equivalent product made with as much care and attention to detail!
Testimonial by Jody Burbach
Your products were the best gift given or received and we are so happy they will now be in our families lives forever .. I can’t thank you enough and the quality was superior to anything that could have bought off a shelf!
Testimonial by Steve Vaquera – The Motor Unit presented Tony Garcia with his retirement gift today. We started a tradition taken from the US Military, of giving a custom designed footlocker that can hold all of his keepsakes; as well as his helmet, boots, and uniform. It’s nice enough to have in your living room, and some day his great grandkids can open it to see the very uniform their great Grandad wore. The picture on the front is laser etched onto the wood, it has a brass name plate, and a sliding shelf. I placed badges, patches, and pins from both his service to the PD, as well as his military service onto the inside lid, to dress it up; like a shadow box. He served 32 years, I figured, if you committed that much time to the PD, you should get something really nice. People get plaques, and that’s nice, but eventually they end up in a drawer or in the garage. Congrats, Tony, you earned it!
Testimonial by Sheila McNeil – I ordered a retirement keepsake box for our beloved CW4, who is closing out his military career after over 40 years of service. I felt a Relic Wood box would be a worthy gift for him, and let me say, your product did not disappoint. Working with Rosie on the artistic layout of the box was a pleasure. She was helpful and prompt with replies. Communication regarding production and shipping was regular and spot on. I am very happy with the process you have in ordering a custom relic wood product. It is easy to upload pictures and your method of communication with the artistic designers is simple. I find that refreshing, as computers frustrate me sometimes.
When the box arrived, I was very pleased! Relic Wood does beautiful work. The construction is meticulous, and the way the photos come through the wood grain is just gorgeous. I could not wait to bring the box into work and show it to the group who participated in the decision to purchase a Relic Wood keepsake and who helped in the selection of the photos. They were equally as impressed with the keepsake box as I was!
We had his retirement party last night, and he was truly touched with the keepsake box. Everyone at the party complimented it, and I happily endorse your company to all my colleagues. Our CW4 has had a positive impact on many individuals over the years, and I truly feel that his keepsake box is on par with the man and his career.
I am so happy I stumbled upon your products online. Beautiful craftsmanship! Wonderful company!
Testimonial by Maria Mitter – I ordered a custom US military memory box for my brother to honor our dad who passed unexpectedly in a April. Our father served in Vietnam. He never spoke about his service, but we know he was proud that he served his country. My brother absolutely loved the memory box. It is beyond beautiful, well made and the pictures are perfect. I would highly recommend any of your products and already have! I have attached a pic when I gave my brother the box on Father’s Day.
