This is what I feel is my finest effort in shadow box construction. A former troop contacted me with an idea to incorporate silhouette to make his retirement shadow box unique from all others. This is the giant version of my chevron shadow box. It is made from African mahogany with midnight blue epoxy chevrons. After the epoxy cured, I sanded everything smooth. Then I routed a recess for the saluting silhouette to allow it to be slightly proud of the face of the door. Then final sanding to 400 grit before finishing with 4 coats Minwax Tung Oil Finish. The door was then wet sanded to 1000 grit and the epoxy polished to a glass like consistency. The silhouette is flat black with dead flat clear to contrast the high gloss of the shadow box. Finally I used black hardware to match the silhouette. This box is 42" x 31" x 3.375" and weighs 32 lbs. Thanks for looking.
