This is the first themed box I’ve done. I built this for my 85 year-old uncle who served in the U.S. Army from 1947 to 1950 and was an MP in Tokyo from 1948 to 1950. He has been active veteran for nearly 3 decades, marching in parades and firing salutes at military funerals.
The box is book-matched Peruvian Walnut; hinges are Peruvian Walnut; lid is Yellowheart as are the splines. The Army Veteran’s patch is behind a thin piece of plexi.
This was an extremely enjoyable project because it went to a very deserving guy.
