Heartwood Creations Logo

Heartwood Creations has quickly earned the reputation as a group of talented craftspeople whose products are now shown in many of the finest galleries and craft shops.


The small heart that is burned on back of each box is our craftman's mark that signifies a Heartwood original. Heartwood Creation's products stand a notch above the rest in their quality, artistry, and craftsmanship.


Our products include secret boxes, jewelry boxes, puzzle boxes, and other wooden gifts. We offer marquetry, inlay, and laser engraved embellishments on all of our boxes.
