    The Bible box I ordered from Custom Wooden Bible Boxes is the best woodworking craftmanship, I have seen it a very long time. The craftmanship was awesome. I am really satisfied with it. The packaging was great as well. I would recommend this company to everyone.

    To the reader:

    It has taken me a long while to think of suitably congratulatory praise for Glenn Nief and the magnificent object of Art he has created for my family. I will do my best to express it in words but it is really pictures that would be needed to illustrate all the features of the piece. And even they fail to give a full impression to the beholder.

    The work is a Bible Box and a worthy repository of a Book which has been in our family for over 150 years. It is shaped like a cube constructed with multiple varieties of wood which give the object a warm glow that calls for touch. The inlaid inscriptions on the top announce the Holy Book and the lineage names for the families which have held the Bible in their care over generations are inscribed. The lid opens to reveal engravings of the coat of arms of my home region (Alsace, France) and that of my wife's (Texas, USA) above words explaining that the box was my present to my spouse on the occasion of Christmas. The back-hinge is all wood and the front panel can be swung down to slide smoothly the unusually large Book out of the case without risking any damage. An unexpected compartment in the bottom holds ancient family papers, photos and daguerreotypes and the box can be locked with an ornate key for protection. The bottom of the box shows worthily the signature of the Artist.

    I tried my best above to communicate the beauty of the receptacle and I am so very grateful to Glenn Nief for having created a heirloom which will amaze generations to come.

    With my very best regards,

    Michel Beck
