Great Job! I really like the script. Thanks for the explanation as well, being retired Air Force I was not familiar. Most of all thanks for your service :)

Nice job. The fact you can read them beats the hell out of my writing.

Did you use 45 degree for all the pieces or just the framing part… looks like a butt joint in the picture showing the back.

I used to get frustrated with joints because I could never get them perfect. My first attempt for a better effort was getting a quality mitre slide. Then I spent a good hour actually calibrating my table saw. I put a fresh blade and it was like night and day….the cuts pass like butter through a hot night and most importatly they were dead on accurate. That was a few years ago. Every now and then I’ll play around with a shadow box for a while and then have to remind myself, go back spend a little time getting everything calibrated from time to time to keep the cuts spot on. Hope this helps…..

Awesome script for the leadership traits. I use stop block for my 45 degree miters on my Miter Saw, that way each one is exactly the same.

Thanks for the comments everyone, I did use a butt joint and then cut the miters on the face pieces to cover the end grain. I will work on calibrating the table saw this week.
