Great looking project and thoughtful for those who sign the dotted line to go into harms way.
Please thank them for their service for me. Freedom never comes free.

A unique plaque for sure. Well done. Detail is impressive. I like the “thinking outside the usual box”.

Great looking shadow box! I love how you designed it, with the anchor and chain. Be sure to thank the Chief for her service!

Nice work! I don’t think I would have added the chief Barbie Doll. That wasn’t my recollection after 25 years of service. My, how things have changed.

This is a very nice shadow box and I am getting ready to retire and would like to know if anyone could make me a shadow box like this one?

Kaywon, there are lots of jocks who make shadow boxes, but they may not have read this posting. I suggest you post a blog, or a request in the forums to get their attention.

I’d like to order one for my retired chief husband, who transitioned three years ago. He didn’t have a chance to get one prior retirement and would like to give it to him for our 20th wedding anniversary in May. How can I obtain or to purchase one? Please advise.

Have your say...
