Angel

Profile pictureMy name is Angel and I am the co-owner of WoodyThings.com, along with my wife Raquel.  We are the proud parents of three wonderful kids, and we live and operate in Connecticut, USA.  I was born in the Dominican Republic and moved to the United States (New York City) in the early 90’s. Since then I’ve completed a career in the United States Marine Corps, I’ve earned my MBA in business, and I’ve learned a few lessons along the way.

My wife and I own and operate Woody Things, an online shop where we design, make and market the products you see here today. My passion for wooden items began during my career in the Marine Corps. I was awed by the handcrafted, meticulously sculpted pieces of custom gifts customarily awarded to Marines as they completed their career. I want to replicate that feeling by providing such items to my customers. Feel free to check out our WoodyThings blog, where we post Do-it-Yourself How-To projects you can complete at home.

  1. Hello!! I wanted to order the marine keepsake box but had a couple of questions. What are the dimensions? I’m sorry if it was stated, I didn’t see it. And also I wanted my son’s name on the front. And I saw where there is an option for the battalion. Is this in place of the eagle anchor globe on the inside lid or is that in addition to the eagle anchor globe? Thank you very much!!

    1. Thank you contacting us Kim! The box dimensions are 8″ long x 5.25″ wide x 3″ tall.

      We can certainly place your son’s name on the front (or on top of USMC), whichever you prefer. 🙂

      If you select a battalion it would be placed inside the lid instead of the Eagle Globe and Anchor.

      Since our products are made to order and totally personalized, we can design the box how you wish. Just let us know!

      Thank you once again for contacting us. Semper Fidelis!
