Shadow box built for my father who spent 21 years in the United Sates Navy. The exterior is painted haze gray to match the color of the ships and is outline with some names on ships that he serve on. The back material was cut from on of his utility shirts that he wore while he was active.

Very unique design. Well done. Being X-Navy the idea of using the blue dungarees for background material brings back a lot of time well spent. Thanks for sharing your work -

Nice looking shadow box! Looks like he served aboard a couple of smaller ships, and a couple of really big ones!
