I was recently asked to build a couple of unique plaques for some gunners mates transferring from Seal Team 3. These Shotgun Tridents as I call them started out with raw factory made Remington 870 shotgun stocks. I only had one factory pad for the end of the stock so I had to make one from walnut for the other stock. I was very happy with the way the walnut one turned out. I designed a shaft and trident for each of the the stocks and made a plaque to hang below. My wife did the Turks head knots out of para chord and we added the coins, rank devices and warfare pins to complete the project. These are made from solid Walnut and finished with clear lacquer. I enjoy working with customers who think outside the box. I believe these will make fun conversation pieces for the recipients for years to come.

Very beautiful and significant plaque. Good idea with shotgun parts. I soppose Trident represents Seal tim No. 3.
