Box with inset lid & custom pewter twist. Oiled with walnut colour all natural oil.

Dear Dan,
When our company was looking for a distinctive, yet cost-effective container in which to house an entire series of VHS tapes or DVDs, we provided your team with the concept and they brought it to fruition. Not only are we pleased with the way the materials compliment our products (vintage-looking, pine wood box, branded with logo and featuring solid pewter closures), but we also depend on and appreciate your promise to deliver our orders on time - and often, ahead of time. Thank you and keep up the good work!

Heirloom Storage Box

Heirloom Storage Box

Box Joint Construction with inset lid and pewter twists

"The box was specially designed and created by Quintessential Canada for this project. This beautifully finished dovetailed box is made of pine and has a brand burnt into the lid. This brand is the 1870's Halton Crest also found on the altas. Daniel O'Shea, it's designer, had a keen sense of detail and Halton's heritage in creating this masterpiece. This is evident everywhere, right down to the Robertson screws used to hold the lid tabs. Robertson screw, one of the top 10 Canadian inventions, was created in Milton.

From point of first contact, your firm was absolutely incredible to work with. In the end the final product far exceeded the expectations of our entire board. It has not only provided an incredible “wow factor” to the overall project, but the truth is the market perception has went from “your leather atlas is really expensive at $450 a copy”, to “wow, this is an incredible package for $450. … The workmanship of the boxes has been terrific, your suggestions in terms of small details were perfect and saved us huge amount of time effort and money. … Your pricing was very competitive to the rest of the market, and a fraction of the price of the “truly custom crafted boxes”, but when you look at the end product and weigh it against the per box cost it truly was an absolute bargain. … We have been so excited by the results we have taken the steps to have you as a vendor linked to the Halton Region Museum Website. That may sound like no big deal, but when you factor this is a museum owned by Halton Regional Government and we have never put a vendor’s link on the website, this is a big deal."
