Over 40 years ago, Mike Fisher crafted his first Secret Box for his girlfriend. Since then, his passion for woodworking has grown into both a career and a world-renowned business, Heartwood Creations. Established in 1978, Rockford, Illinois out of a small garage in Mike Fisher's home, this was the first location for his business. After a decade, Heartwood moved into their current facilities and have been expanding and improving our product line and woodworking techniques ever since. They quickly earned a reputation as a group of talented craftspeople from America’s heartland whose products are now featured in many of the finest galleries and craft shops both in the United States and internationally. The small heart that is burned on back of each box is our craftsman’s mark that signifies a Heartwood original. Proudly handmade in the USA, Heartwood Creation's products stand a notch above the rest in their quality, artistry, and craftsmanship.
