  4. Military Shadow Boxes

    A few of the military shadow boxes I've built. The second one, with the weather station design, is my personal box from when I retired in 2005. The only thing I'm unhappy with is the lower facing board on the fourth picture, the one with the fluted columns. It was a rush job that had to be...
