I was looking at Steevedgood site and fount this simple shadow box to build.
I had built one last week and the wife gave it to a friend before I had taken any pictures, so thought I would build her another one and be sure to get the pictures this time. LOL

Built with 1/4” birch plywood and birch trim with clear Danish oil finish.

That looks like a fun project. Is that cnc work, or other?

This is scroll saw work using 1/4” plywood.
I liked the way you are able to round the plywood [shape] and it starts showing the darker wood under neath really helps add to the looks.
The one I made last week was with each part being a different type wood so it took a lot longer to make. This was about a 4 hour project.

I really love this!
It reminds me of some shadowboxes I used to see in Germany years when I was a childI
