So I was asked to build this as a retirement shadowbox. Any ideas on how it’s going to turn out? How would you build it?

I started woodworking as a challenge from a co-worker. He was retiring from a cush job and said that if I wanted to take over for him that I would have to be able to build miniature aircraft chocks for going away gifts. I went out and bought a table saw and sander and was on my way to starting a business. After building the chocks I was asked to build other projects; shadow boxes, statue base, challenge coin racks, military novelties and more. The more I built the better I got and the more I was told I should open my own business. Here I am 9 years later and am still at it working from my house. I have pieces in homes, and offices to include the Pentagon (my greatest woodworking accomplishment yet). I love what I do and do what I love. I retired after 20 years of faithful active duty service in Dec 2010. Thanks for looking at my work!

Here’s my first attempt at video recording my work. I’ll add more videos and images as the project progresses. This is another customer request. It will be made of Solid Oak for the Star and Stripes and the dark lines will be Mahog...
