All products on this site made from Ancient Swamp Kauri wood removed from a swamp where carbon dated samples range from 5,000 to 60,000 years.

At Heirloom Boxes I make a range of beautiful hand crafted products from Ancient Swamp Kauri timber.

This timber has been buried in the swamps of Northland, New Zealand for up to 60,000 years making it the oldest workable timber in the world.

Swamp Kauri has an absolutely stunning range of color and pattern and is simply like no other timber.

In my workshop at Whangarei, Northland, New Zealand I craft a range of beautiful Jewellery boxes mainly using hand tools, some of which are antiques.

As well as jewellery boxes I also craft a range of products including beautiful serving platters and boards, some complete with ceramic dipping bowls, also candle holders spatulas and other assorted items.

It gives me great pleasure to select an unattractive piece of timber and reveal the beauty that can lay beneath the surface.

No two pieces of work are the same, even when made from the same piece of timber using the same design every piece will be unique, such is the beauty of this special timber.
