  1. Air Force retirement trunk

    I finished this retirement trunk for a Command Master Sergeant in the Air Force a while back but it was just presented recently. The customer wanted it to be able to hold his bugle yet still be able to remove it easily for use. This presented a bit of a challenge since all I had to go off of...

  5. First Air Force Symbol Shadow Box

    Well, this was definitely a learning experience. I did everything the hardest way possible, but I got it done. I figured out that it is a really bad idea to cut out EACH and EVERY piece individually and get good joints. I would do it completely differently if I had to do it again. The...
  6. Flight Equipment Plaque

    Just finished making this plaque for a retiring Flight Equipment technician who went on to become the State Command Chief for the CT Air National Guard. I cut the helmet in half freehanding it on a table saw. I couldn't find my laser level to put a straight line across it to mark it for...

  13. Deployed Sound System

    During one of my deployments I worked with an army loadmaster who had bought a really pricey Bose sound system for his iPod so that the crew could listen to some tunes while they were doing their preflights and postflights in the aircraft. But he had a busted ill fitting plastic container to...

  17. Something for me

    This was an emotional project like no other because it was for me. I chose to use Hickory and Walnut because of the "live" look of Hickory with two coats of Minwax natural stain. I "enlisted" a couple of my younger troops to complete the task as I was not supposed to work on my own project(but...
