    Hi Ben

    Thank you so much for making such a beautiful box for my son’s 40th birthday gift. I am sure he will agree with me, when we give it to him next week, when I say that it looks so very special. ‘A special box for a special person’ is the engraving on it and I can vouch for the words, it is a very special box indeed.
    Thanks you for making it special.

Finish: Superior Danish Oil

Aftercare: Product maintenance is very important. We recommend you continue to treat your product with Danish oil or similar timber treatment oil to protect the timber and stop it drying out. This will also help to prevent staining, discolouration, cracking and warping.

About Timber: Natural timber will always want to move. It’s going to expand and shrink as the temperature and humidity changes in your home and outside, rest assured it won’t change drastically. Small hairline splits may occur as your product ages, this is completely normal and is regarded as part of the timbers natural beauty. As the seasons change you may see some movement in your product, again this is completely normal.

Do not store your product outside, in a garden shed or a garage.

If you need any help or advise on how to maintain your product please contact us or consult your care guide.

Product Description: Personalised Wooden Box with Hinged Lid

MakeMeSomethingSpecial has been making these very popular personalised wooden keepsake boxes for many years and now we have released our standard hinged lid engraved wooden box.

Handcrafted from solid oak and American Black Walnut by hand with considerable care and attention to detail, only the finest hand-selected Oak and Walnut goes into making these classic and timeless wooden keepsake boxes.

Our personalised wooden boxes are ideal as memory boxes or just as a good functional keepsake storage box for those most irreplaceable and treasured possessions. Alternatively, these beautiful dovetail boxes are perfect as jewellery boxes.

The hinges we use are very high-quality stop hinges, which are used for fine jewellery box making. The lid will open up 90 degrees and stop there. We have also carved a very simple and elegant finger-sized bowl, in-between the lid and box for opening the box with ease.

Internal Jewellery Tray:

You can add a stunning wooden internal jewellery tray to your wooden box. Ideal for cufflinks, necklaces, rings and special small keepsakes. It fits perfectly into the top of the box with a flush finish, which can be easily removed to reveal the larger storage compartment below.

This is a really lovely and useful extra that makes our handmade boxes that little bit extra special. The tray features two soft curved edge dishes.

If you are looking for a good quality personalised wooden gift for that someone special, as a wedding gift, anniversary or birthday gift, this is perfect! Handmade to order these stunning engraved wooden boxes feature beautiful dovetail joints which make the box very strong and long-lasting. These are the kind of boxes you will keep forever and will always be treasured, whatever you keep in them.

Personalise your wooden box:

You have the option of Personalised engraving on the top of the lid – up to 50 characters on the top of the lid, and a further 150 characters on the underside of the lid if desired. However, we can even offer beautiful carved pictures, symbols and images instead or as well. Please take a look at our images.

Why settle for standard templates or limited designs when you can make something special, create something totally unique and different. We can personalise this to any requirements as well as create bespoke sizes for you. Bring your personal design and ideas to life.
