I like the secret compartment – sized for a hidden fifth, no less!

Cool project, very different display. It has so much character and color love it. My uncle just retired from the army after 30 yr and I’m X-Navy… Congrats on they’re retirement as well. Love the secret compartment.

You did a fine job on this. It’s a nice design.
