This is a candelabra for the Keesler AFB Chiefs Group to use at their induction ceremonies. A CMSgt friend of mine provided the concept. The ranks are actual stripes and the logo is arcrylic mirror. The protective coating is still on the mirror. All items are inlaid into the red oak. Because of it’s size (over 40” long and 20” tall), it breaks down into 3 pieces.

Pat – can you send me the dimensions of the AF Logo you inlaid with plastic mirror? I’m thinking of mounting an AF logo in my shadow box.

that is truly nice work! My father was retired USAF and I’m retired USN.. LOL.. I’m now motivated to make a candleabra for the local Cub Scout Pack and Boy Scout Troop I’m involved with.

Have your say...
