I built this for a friend who gave me a Walnut tree. The Walnut from the tree is still drying in the back yard, but luckily I had some dry Walnut on hand to build this…...! He simply wanted a shadowbox 24” square by 2” deep.
The frame is Black Walnut with a Tiger Maple border and the back is ship-lapped bamboo flooring and is free floating. Used box joints on the corners. There are 2 French cleats on back so the box should sit flush on the wall.
The glass is removable, but it is a delicate process. Used a few dabs of silicone to hold the Tiger Maple strip to the top of the glass.
Finish is rattle can lacquer and a coat of Johnson’s paste wax.
Will probably deliver it tomorrow….......
Thanks for looking!
