They are also created with a special magnetic locking system that allows them to store important valuables securely, out of the sight of others.

The design for the billet boxes was conceived in 2005, during a slump in Eric's employment. "The company I worked for was going to close down, and they gave everyone a 3-month notice, but there was no work during that time," recalls Eric, who was doing work as a machinist. "You had to show up for work, but people sat around and did nothing. I took advantage of their equipment and started making my own products."

This free time allowed Eric to perfect the design of his Magic Billet Box. "I got my own machine at home, and that's what I do now," he says. "I make my own products and try to put them out to the market. I invested quite a bit of money into the product, getting the patent and everything; I wanted to make it work instead of just having the patent and not doing anything with it."

This determination and creativity led to the opening of, where customers can watch a video demonstrating how the billet boxes work as well as viewing sample products. It is readily apparent that the product is not only functional, but handsomely made, with the option of heavy customization. Eric says that this is only the beginning.

"The blog is mainly to let people know what new things I've come up with, and what new engravings are available," explains Eric. "I'll be answering questions -- mainly common questions I hear. People are always emailing me, and sometimes I get the same kind of questions, so maybe I can put some of those comments down and give explanations or answers."
