  1. Commemorative Rifle Display Case

    This project was commissioned by a gentleman whose son was killed in Afghanistan. The son had been collecting military rifles and needed a M1 Garand to finish the collection. The father completed the collection and will display it in this case. Our sincerest condolences on the loss of this...
  2. Retirement Sea Chest - Maple and Walnut

    This is a Sea Chest I made recently for a retiring Navy member. It turned out to be a pretty challenging project, due to the fact that I still had to incorporate walnut insert despite the curvature of the lid. This one features a shadow box insert. The shadow box has two areas for flags -...
  3. Little by little

    Trying little by little to get back in the swing of things. I've been taking some refresher, get reacquainted with my tools classes at Woodcraft. This class was building a shadow box using a dovetail jib. The material is walnut and the box itself is about 20×20 give or take a little. I finished...
  4. Huge Shadow Box

    I have built many shadow boxes over the years but this is the largest one I have built to date. The base is 48" wide and the overall height is 51". The yellow thing you see on the right side of the shadow box is a yardstick I placed in the picture for reference. This sailor started out as an...
  5. Display case for Trophy Belt

    I was asked to find a way to display one of those huge trophy belts, like wrestlers get. I was totally free to make all design choices, so I stuck a nail in the wall, hung it, and said "There ya go!" Not really. I decided to use my new lock-miter bit and make a glass-front shadowbox. The case...
  6. end table plaque/shadow box

    Drawer had a magnetic child lock, magnet was removed from stock plastic handle and epoxied into the Eagle Globe and Anchor. Double dove tail compliments of my incur LS router fence. Walnut and maple finished with only wax.
  7. 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...
  8. Stage 3 Cancer Box

    I made this shadow box for a friend who unfortunately just got diagnosed with stage 3 testicular cancer. Unfortunately the tumors spread to his lungs, stomach and brain. I made this and presented it to him in the hospital when he was initially diagnosed and enrolled. He was several weeks away...
  9. Medal Display Case

    Marathon medal case for my boss' Christmas present. Walnut with maple accents. This is the first time I bought semi-rough lumber and milled it with my new jointer (still need a planer) and the thickness is a bit uneven, but OK. Through-tennon joinery (first try at this - need sharper chisels!)...
  10. Random Shadow Boxes

    Here are a few pictures of shadow boxes I've made. The first one is a horrible picture of the first shadow box I made for a mentor of mine upon his retirement. It is made from curly maple and cherry. It was the first shadow box I made and it got so much attention that I was compelled to build...

    made for a joint service gaurdsman
  12. "Shadow Boxes" for my daughter

Middle is Walnut with Maple splines. Large is Yellow Birch (strikingly similar to hard Maple) with walnut strips and...
  13. Dance Shoe Display Box

    Been a while since I built something just for my daughters so this year for Christmas I decided to do shadow/display boxes for their first dance shoes. Something I'm hoping they will keep for years to come. They have been in dance since they were 4 years old and they are now 13 and 10 and they...
  14. Military Shadow Box Table

    I made this table for my 1st Sergeant who retired after 29 years of military service in the USAF. Although this took a while to make, it was well worth the time and effort. It is made of red oak 1X material and oak ply finished with a few coats of minwax classic oak stain. This is a project I...
  15. Military Sword Shadow Box

    I made this for a GYSGT who works for me. He had some momentos from when he was a drill instructor at Paris Island. He had one and it fell off the cabinet and busted so I built another one that was better and stronger. It is made of walnut with biscuit joinery. I created the trim on the router...
  16. Firehose Shadow Box

    This was fun project for one of my departing Shipmates. The flag is a replica of our ship's battle flag…USS Harry S Truman. The flag is made from an expired fire hose from the ship. Everything was cut out with the scroll saw. The mustang in the center represents someone who has come up from...
