I created this project out of Walnut with a Hickory inlay. This retiree chose to reverse the wood combination that I normally create. He requested a black suede backer; I felt blue would complement the Air Force tradition more than the black would. I completed the shadowbox with both backers so he can choose which looks better. I also installed L.E.D lighting to enhance the interior.

Awesome project! I have an idea for you (something I want for my Crew Chief Box) if the inlays could be frosted plexi and then light them with blue LEDs with regular white LEDs in the upper box….that would freekin be bad-ass!!!
