Making a Shadow Box With Splined Miters

01-29-2018 02:47 AM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I made this shadow box to showcase my son’s recent school accomplishments. I made the frame out of some oak I had in the shop. I added splines to the miters to give it some strength. This is a great afternoon project that doesn’t take a lot of material and utilizes a simple wax finish.

This one is based on a picture my client provided. T...

A Special Shadowbox

Not too long ago I was contacted by a young viewer on the A Simple Design of Ocala Facebook Page. Ryan Dellucky of Ponchatoula, Louisiana reached out and asked if I would be willing to donate a badge case or display case. When I asked him what it was for he told me about his grandfather.As Ryan stated, “My Grandfather at age 80 sadly passed away monday night and he was in a vol. fire dept. and he worked for The Times Picayune. He also climbed last year a 110 story building at the ag...

So the real journey begins.

08-16-2011 04:35 AM by usnret | 3 comments »

I have been in the US Navy for almost 20 years an a Machinist’s Mate, which means a boiler operator and turbine mechanic. Last Monday I received the final approval for my retirement that will be the end of December. So the challenge is trying to find a set of plans for a nice shadow box. I am a woodworker and I should build one myself instead of buying one. If anyone has anyplans or tips on how to make one it would be appreciated.

Flag Display And Shadowbox #1: Day 1

03-30-2009 03:14 PM by turkva | 1 comment »

OK, so I decided to go with the Flag Display case. Shouldn’t take too long, and I really want to protect the flag and memorabilia. I started out with two rough sawn red oak boards that were in pretty bad shape. You can see in the picture that about 1/3 of the boards are splintered pretty bad. I figured that since the parts for this project are pretty small, I could manage to get enough straight grain out of these two boards and save some of the better lumber for other projects. Roug...
