Project Information

This was done for my SWAT team here at JSC. The patch was flown aboard the International Space Station by Astronaut Chris Cassidy on expedition 35/36.

It measures 15×17x2 and is made from some 8/4 walnut I had laying around, and the splines are cherry. This is a first for me using the splines. Made a jig for the table saw and knocked 'em out. I did learn to really hold or clamp the frame to the jig though. The face of it has about a 30 degree double bevel. It's tough to see in the pics, but it's there. And I found a much easier way to hold the glass in. How come no one ever told me to use silicon?! lol

Nice looking shadow box! And yeah, I've learned that silicon is what people are using these days. It's a lot easier to apply than glass stops, and if the glass breaks, you just cut it out with a utility knife, and replace.
