Just one of the few shadow boxes I work on. This one is made of Mahogany. I know it is simple, but I am working on a large Aircraft Carrier Shadow box currently…pics coming soon.

Great Looking Shadow Box, I don’t believe that its little at all. Any Service Member or Family would be proud to have it, full of their Loved Ones Memento’s. Keep Your Heads Held High, and God Bless the USA. Keep the Projects coming.

Very nice finish on the mahogany. A shadow box anyone should be proud of to receive. Looking forward to the CVN version.

I really don’t see anything simple about the box. These are deceptive in appearance. The construction of these is anything but simple. This is a very nice box and you did a good job with the mahogany. I have no doubt that it was well received.

This is a nice post. Thanks for sharing.

Do you have any plans for your shadow boxes? We have a fellow Chief retiring and I am going to make one for him.

Have your say...
