I finally made a little shadow box for my badges. Thought they should be someplace besides my drawer. I am still missing the glass that goes in it – have to make a trip to the glass shop and get a piece cut. I used select pine and cedar – I wanted to make this as I have to make two more for two other officers retiring from the PD. I guess it will work. This was a combination of using my band saw, table saw, router and sander. Most shadow boxes are large and I got to thinking – about the size – this one measures 14” long and 9.5” high – 4” deep. The reason for the size – again I got to thinking (have a headache now) that after you pass from this life – maybe someone in the family would keep this if it was not too large to hang on the wall (that is the reason for the flat back) or have on a desk top (has 5 – 3/8” plugs for legs). It really does not measure up to the projects here -
but was fun to make.
