  1. Combat Air Crew Shadowbox (my first attempt at a shadowbox)

    This is my first attempt at making a shadowbox. There are alot of things I would do differently based on what I learned while making this but overall Im happy with the end result and the experience of making it. I will get a band saw prior to attempting another custom shaped shadowbox because...
  2. 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...
  3. Wedding Shadow Box

    Ok, this one was a project of necessity. After my wife and I got married she wanted a place to "store" all of our wedding stuff… I think she just wanted to display more than anything haha. Anyway, money was tight so the choices of material suffered. The carcase is made of 1/2" pine plywood...
  4. Box Joint Shadowbox

    A good friend of mine called me recently and told me that he was putting in his paperwork to retire from the Air Force. Over the years I have done several projects for he and his wife at their house but this time he was asking for something special. He wanted to know if I would build his...
  5. USMC EOD Shadowbox

    This was a project almost 10 years in the making. I made one of these style of boxes for myself when I retired. But I ended up re-doing it and giving it to a friend. So I finally got around to making one for myself. I refined the design to clean up the lines and had the laser engraving done...
  6. 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...

  8. Tribute to my Father

    My Dad recently passed away at the age of 91 years old. He was an amazing man and taught me many things. One of which was to be Proud to be an American. He served in the Army during both World War II and the Korean War. I was able to get his service records so I could accurately recreate his...
  9. shadow box

    This was my first attempt at a shadowbox about 10 or so years ago. It was for my brother who was in the Marines in the late 80's, early 90's. Its interesting to look at old projects and see how far you have come.

  11. Commanders Shadowbox End Table

    Here is a table I was asked to build for the Dover AFB Wing Commander as a going away give from all of his Group Commanders. It was my first time using tennons. I'm not sure if I like that much. It's made of solid Cherry and stained with a combination of Red Mahogany and Bombay Mahogany. I...

    Continuing the quest to kill off a couple tubs of offcuts, here is a shadowbox to hold a small collection of vintage lighters and tape measures. Approximately 30×14 x 1.75", Cherry except for the back which is cherry and walnut. One single dovetail on each corner to hold the 1/2" sides...

  16. Former Troop's Shadowbox

    I was asked to build a shadowbox by a former troop; he said that he wanted to keep it simple but wanted a dark wood. After several conversations and knowing what I did of him, I talked to my wood dealer and picked up a piece of Ovangkol (Shadua). While I had never worked with this wood before...

  19. They call him Shooter

    An old co-worker of mine asked me to make a shadowbox for another old co-worker that is retiring from the Air Force. I worked with both of them when I was still active duty. He had drawn up the plans of what he wanted, with measurements and everything. I must say he was pretty close, as I only...
  20. Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

    Finally!!! So this was my first real intarsia project and it is full of flaws but I'm going to call them character. I believe there are 83 pieces of the project and all woods are natural….lost track of the different type species of wood as I would just pull out of my cutoff bin. The shadow...
