Here's an example of what they look like, sizes and style vary from batch to batch.
Small wooden boxes There's something about a small box crafted from a beautiful piece of solid timber.
People love boxes, even the sound they make as they slam shut is a pleasure to hear. You can't find quality like this in the shops anymore. If you have a precious item you need to protect for a lifetime, or simply need a place to store your own jewelery then why not have one made for you just the way you like? The depth and natural colour of crafted solid timber cannot be matched. This small box features a tinted 4mm thick glass lid and mitre insert joinery, the felt lining on the inside of the lid is removable to allow the stone to be viewed through the glass top.
SOLID TASMANIAN BLACKWOOD TIMBER
Don't be fooled by cheap stained timber - Many box makers use stained mdf or ply,in my opinion it has no depth of grain and is usually a cheap veneer
Document boxes - This custom made wooden box was designed to hold a film script, a similar box can be made to store any A4 sized document. Holds a large number of sheets if needed. Modern sleek design for your most precious documents or scripts.

Andrew's notes This box pictured below was made for Random House Publishers for the launch of Dan Brown's sequel to The Davinci Code.
Random House described it as the best book launch ever and were very happy with the box custom made for them. It was featured on the Sunrise program with a live cross to the event in Melbourne Australia. An article was also published in the Herald Sun newspaper.
I was very proud to be part of this historic event for such a famous person as Dan Brown.

PRICE RANGE - Custom Made Boxes Hand made
boxes with trays, divisions, felt lining etc, are crafted
hours of skill patience and care, some designs above take weeks to
and polish to a high standard. If you would
like a box made from the finest materials using quality timber & joinery, designed
to last a life time then please understand that they take time to make
and are priced accordingly. Please do not expect me to fit within a small
budget, if you are after a cheaper box, perhaps a small one that does
not require so much work. These ones below may be more suitable for
those on a budget.
Here's a picture of a tiny wooden broach box I made recently.
Tasmanian Blackwood laminated onto 4mm mdf with a lift off lid design
(no hinge or catch) Tinted wax finish.
A solid timber version would have been too expensive so this was made to fit the budget.
This one below is solid Tas Blackwood timber with hinges and a tiny magnetic catch.
The lid has been laser engraved with part of the Tennessee flag
Total size 50mm square (external
dimensions) Custom made to order with laser engraved logo - This box was sent to the USA
approximate price $150-200
