Well I have been looking around here on LJ and have been moved by the great craftsmanship. I have collected a ton of ideas for my wife’s retirement shadow box. Here are just a few of the WIP so far. I can’t wait to finish it up. The main wood I am using is Maple and I will be adding Walnut for the inlay sections. Thank you everyone that has inspired me for this project.

Fitting tribute to another hero that serves our country.

Very cool! Good idea to route the entire front from one panel. Do you have a similar plan to fit the stripes to the slots? I’ve never been able to get them to match so I normally attach the stripes to the front.

I actually met a guy who bought himself a CNC machine for a hobby. Him and I messed around and he is going to cut out the inlay parts as well. At first I was going to use a router with an inlay bushing kit http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/product/704 but after meeting Larry I went for the CNC machine.

That will be one very good looking shadow box! All those curves would prove too frustrating for me – I commend your craftsmanship.

Great looking box. Please post finished pics. I would enjoy seeing it when done. Congratulate the Master Sgt on her retirement and thank her for her service.
