I made this for a retired Air Force friend. Oak & black walnut.

Very nice!!!! I have been looking at these on LJ. I want to do something similar for my retired Master Seargent older brother. If I might ask where did you get the logo in the center of the star??
Any pointers or plans on building one of these?? ThĂ nks…...........Jack

Very nice job! Did you inlay the stripes? I built one last month for the first time. I think I will inlay the stripes next time I build one.

I glued each piece onto a 1/2” plywood base. The coin in the star is a challenge coin that shows the airmen’s rank. I offer for each person to choose whatever coin they want. Whatever means the most to them, such as a coin from their unit or a commander they really liked.
I build another MSgt box also.

Hello,

What is the price on the shadow box? MY wife is retiring from the AF (MSgt) and she loves this shadow box that is pictured above. Thank you. Shipping is to Hawaii 96818.
