  3. Captain's Sea Chest

    I was commissioned to build this sea chest by a retired Naval Aviator Captain. I have a few hundred hours of labor into this project. It is made with a solid cherry hard wood exterior and lined with aromatic cedar on the interior. Gluing up all the lumber and sanding it flat was a crazy...

    I just built this Hat Box for a newly promoted Coast Guard Chief. Something to provide a place he can proudly display his hat in for many years to come and hopefully one day become a family heirloom. The artwork was done with my ShopBot CNC machine. It consists of the following; left side has...

  6. Husband and Wife Shadowboxes

    I was recently asked to build matching style shadowboxes for a husband and wife retiring from the Coast Guard together. It is always nice to get return business but even better when you get to see continued success for the client. Back in 2014 I was asked to build a hatbox for a newly selected...

    I was recently asked by a retiring Navy Yeoman to make her a shadowbox and add a single quill that crossed under the American flag to symbolize her job in the Navy. I thought it was a cool idea. I cut the quill with my CNC machine. Both the shadow box and the quill are made from cherry...

  12. Cutlass Display

    I made this Cutlass display for a retiring Senior Chief.

  13. Double Flag Shadowbox

    Completed this solid cherry shadowbox for a customer. I thought the patches across the bottom and the coins mounted below each flag really added a lot of class to the finished product. The Senior Chief Anchor inside was cut with my CNC machine. This was a fun project. The client was very happy.
  14. USCG Walnut Shadowbox

    I was asked by a Coast Guard friend of mine to build this Walnut Shadowbox for one of his shipmates that was retiring. The Coxswain warfare device at the top along with the USCG Chiefs anchor and Coast Guard emblem artwork at the bottom were all done on my CNC machine. I would like to wish...

    Here are a couple of emblem shadow boxes I have built recently. I have had a number of requests for this style shadow box and I enjoy making them. Installation of all the memorabilia is done by my wife. This is a tedious process and I think she does a great job. Our goal is to create a...

  19. Cutting Board with Chef's Hat

    This end grain Cutting Board was made as a Christmas gift for a local chef. It is made entirely out of cherry and finished with olive oil. It is a simple design simple but I thought personalizing it and adding the chefs hat made for a nice touch.
