I had been looking to have a jewelry box built for my wife that we could tuck into the shelves on the closet system in our house, and while searching the web came across a project that Al Wilson, The Oakman, has listed on the CustomMade marketplace. This looked like the best fit for what I wanted so I put together my request with dimensions and some options and sent it off. Al got back to me quite fast and we went over the project and some suggestions he had. We thought his suggestions and options for dividers and ring rails were spot on and went ahead with the contract. Al kept us informed all along the way and finished the project a few days ahead of the original commitment date. The jewelry box was shipped in really perfect packaging and had no damage or issues. And the jewelry box is absolutely beautiful - the workmanship and details are perfect, the finish is perfect. There are small details like the bevel on the drawer edges that really show the attention to detail that went into the box. Al does fantastic work and if I ever need something that he can build I will not hesitate to get in touch again. You should too.
I was looking for a box as a gift for my husband. The final result is very satisfying, but I learned how important it is to know exactly what you want when collaborating with an artisan on this site. Al was very willing to communicate and figure out what I was looking for, but I was not always able to make distinctions between options sent by photo or to specify certain details. Luckily for us, Al agreed to revise his work, and we're pleased with the final product.
