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!

Extremely happy with this purchase. It looks great and has plenty of room for memorabilia, coins, shirts, patches, etc.. Received a 2nd order and am again very happy with the purchase. 2nd order was for a marriage/memory box. Arrived packaged very well like the 1st and will consider purchasing again if ew have additional gifts to buy for other family members.

I have bought this box for my youngest daughter ( 35 years old) because she will represent the 4th generation of RNs in her maternal lineage! Her father who passed away was an RN as well and a woodworker! He made outstanding boxes, cigar boxes, furniture with those finger joints!! He would have been amazed at your box and would have given you the highest of compliment, in craftsmanship! My daughter will be pinned on May 23rd this year, I as well as her daughter ( 6 years old) will be pinning her!! I will be putting into her box, memorable trinkets from her GreatGrandmother who was a nurse during WWII, her great Aunt who followed and myself, ( still working as an RN at 66) and from her Dad! This will be an Heirloom!!! Thank you so so much!!! Carmalita Saucedo

Wish I could give them more stars!! The customer service is outstanding! All my questions were patiently answered and once my order was submitted the graphic designer contacted via phone and email to go over the order and make sure they understood exactly what I wanted. The communication was very clear and I felt I could call or contact at anytime without worry. My retirement chest was received a little earlier than I thought and it was EXACTLY what I wanted and had in mind. The craftsmanship was superb!! I could not be any happier with my order. I love the fact they are a veteran owned company here in the USA. I am already making plan to order another of their products in the coming months.

Relic Woods has assisted the District 1 Law Enforcement Council for several years with gifts we have purchased for officer awards. Our Council has purchased several of the Thin Blue Line and customized St. Michael keepsake boxes. The recipients always share what a fantastic gift and how much it means to them. At the event ceremony when Relic Woods is mentioned as a gift provided, it is also shared Relic Woods is a Made in America company which employs those most important to all of us, our Veterans. I look forward to calling upon Relic Woods staff every year because I know my order matters and it will be handled with great care. Working with Relic Woods is always a positive experience, from the staff answering calls to those shipping the order, and everyone in between, thank you for the attention you give to customer service and the effort you place in delivering a phenomenal product.

I was given one of the large trunks as a retirement ceremony from the military and loved it, as did everyone else who saw it. I have since purchased 2 additional trunks and a shadow box for fellow members of my unit. I have mine displayed in my office at work and lots of folks admire it and I tell them where it was purchased. all the boxes were of excellent quality and craftsmanship. I highly recommend them and will be buying more in the future.

I have been using Relic Wood for the past two years for creating retirement gifts for personnel that are retiring. They are wonderfully crafted and easily customizable pieces of art that have become all the rage at our agency. Relic Wood is very easy to work with and are responsive to any needs or concerns. They have been a wonderful company to work with and their products are amazing and beautiful. I highly recommend their keepsakes boxes.

WoWoW!!! I can’t say enough about this company! Such amazing and great work! I had my US Navy Retirement Box made here last year and had it shipped to Naples, Italy and with the Navy Tradition in “Shadow Boxes” is a really big deal. It came out perfection. Great response time. Amazing customer service. I would use this company over and over again. I really wish I had another project to do because I would use Relicwood in a heartbeat! Also, I had a sign made for my Moms birthday: “I’ll Never Walk Alone” which again was priceless! Such teamwork on the design idea. God Bless this Company! Thank You - U.S. Navy Seabee Retired

Relic Wood has been a really exceptional business for me; wonderful shopping experience, merchandise, and staff. I have purchased many beautifully hand-crafted boxes from Relic Wood. Each one has its own personality; with beautiful wildlife, patriotic and military service graphics, they are simply amazing. Not only are the boxes beautifully hand-crafted from grade A wood, but they literally are functionally study, and are not just for looks. I use 9 special boxes to carry heavy loads, and with beautiful leather strap handles, they are functionally superior. I will continue to buy from Relic Wood, both ready to ship and custom made wooden boxes. I will buy from no one else. Thank you!

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.
