For the following project, I received some requests for more information and plans.

I finally got around to learning Google SketchUp this weekend and drew these up. Let me know of any improvements needed please. It was built around the flag I received on the way out, which was 3’ x 5’.
This goes out to any and all in hopes it’ll be used for other veterans.

That’s a great looking shadow box… I too am new to Sketchup and just getting used to it, but you certainly have a knack for it… very nice sketchup rendition… wish I was that good at that program.. still a beginner….

Troy, I would like the file for this shadow box. I have a guy retiring in a couple months and I would like to make this for him.

Troy, This is a great looking display case. If you are still able and willing to share, I would love a copy of the plans. Thank you for your service.

Have your say...
