So after a lot of time in the sun I finish this project it’s made from Cherrywood with maple splines. I spent so much time with the box I was sad to see it go but the new owner loves it so much. And what a way to show off a proud military career.

Great job. I have used those small covers in the past….gives me the impression this is a deep, heavy box. LDO, PAMO….I probably know the recipient.

In Navy signal parlance, “BRAVO ZULU,” which means WELL DONE!

Those small covers in the box taught me a very important lesson on superglue vapors in enclosed spaces. If you glue everything together then Seal in the box you’ll wake up in the morning with fingerprint marks on the black rims and they are hard to get off.

Wowzie… a looks like a mustang aviator type… must have put in 30 years, as the ranks and awards tally up to two full careers.

Who carved the horse?

Great layout and execution of the design and worthy of the recipients accomplishments.
