A Master Chief friend of mine from Hawaii commissioned me to make this Koa wood shadowbox for his retirement. The artwork in the center is my own custom design scrolled from 1/2” Koa. I used dark blue plexiglass behind the artwork as a background. The finish is hand rubbed oil sanded in phases up to 2000 grit. Once dry I applied Black Bison Fine past wax and hand buffed it. This was my first attempt at a hand rubbed finish. The folks at our local Rockler store provided guidance in what to use and how to do it. My buddy was well pleased with the shadowbox.
