Decorative Trinket Boxes;
"The Split Top"

** Prices for the Split Top range from
$110 - $120, depending on the wood **

These decorative trinket boxes can often be the exact gift you're looking for, whether you are needing unique unusual gift ideas for men or women.

Handcrafted of various woods, this particular design displays maple burl on the lid. The lid is make of two pieces that fit together when closed, but swivel open to reveal an open space inside; perfect for holding any small items that you need to store in one place.

The box measures 6" wide by 6" deep and 3" high. I offer this box in a variety of woods, including bubinga, cherry, Brazilian cherry, and curly maple.

To see a photo that shows this box in each type of wood, click here to see the Split Top page with the different woods.

The different ways in which you can use this box are limited only by your imagination (and, well, admittedly, its small size).

  • It's perfect as a teen jewelry box, if a special young lady is just starting her jewelry collection.
  • It works perfectly as a "catch-all" box to store your change, keys, lip balm, and anything else you throw on the counter at the end of the day.
  • If you know someone who collects coins, medals, or other mementos but doesn't need to display them, then this box works great for that as well.

Nearly everyone could use one of these decorative trinket boxes somewhere in their home; and the fact that it is handmade will make it a one-of-a-kind, personalized gift.

Since no two woods are ever the same (especially when it comes to the maple burl I use on the lids), your specific box will vary from these photos. I will email you a photo of your customized box before shipping it out. If you're interested in this box, please fill out the form below and mention the Split Top box and which woods you'd prefer.

Thank you, Steve, for the beautiful jewelry box. It is gorgeous and I know that my daughter will love it. We hope it will be an heirloom piece for her to remember her graduation day from med school. Hopefully we will do business again in two years when my other daughter finishes her grad degree.Sincerely yours,


Just to let you know that my jewelry box arrived and it is stunning, I really love it! I looked at hundreds of them including store-bought (and probably Chinese-made), Amish/Shaker, and other hand-mades, and yours were the most beautiful (and the most versatile, as none of the others had adjustible drawer dividers). Thanks for the beautiful jewelry box, and I'm glad my holiday purchase was Made in the USA.
