Military Shadow Box
This was built for a member that retired after 22 years in the service.
It was simple to make. I used maple wood for the build and stained it red oak.
This was my learning stage when it comes to staining and wood that would take stains well.
Normally I do not stain woods due to my perference in natural color wood.

Great looking shadow box! I’m sure he’ll really appreciate it!

On a side note, and I may not have every detail of this right, but a guy I knew was going to USCG OCS, and needed to build a box for his dress hat. Anyway, I helped him with a little of the build, but he did the majority of the work. He made it with a glass top, so that the hat was visible. Turned out pretty well, especially for a non-woodworker!

Very nice approach to the challenge of using two flags in the same case. Well done!! What size are those flags?
