This one is a shadow box I made for the Guest of Honor for our last Marine Corps birthday ball. It has a flag that has flown at Officer Candidates School (OCS) Headquarters. All of the enlisted chevrons and officer insignia represent what ranks we have at OCS. I built the shadow box out of walnut and cherry. The sline joints are alternating, cherry in walnut and walnut in cherry. One thing I wish I could get better at is folding the flag so all of the stars are pararrel to the deck. That was the hardest part. These pics do not show it but I did get the flag sqaured away later. The Staff Sergeant in the photo sent me the pics of the General and us. He really liked the gift and he knows he has a one of a kind. The joy of woodworking!
