This shadow box was a going away gift for our Major in my section. I wanted to do something different so we got the glass etched instead of putting a metal plate inside. It is made out of Cherry and has brass pins in the top securing the sides. I finished this in tung oil with a couple coats of paste wax. I also did something different with the challenge coin and placed it on a walnut pedastal at a 45 degree angle. Overall this is a rather simple shadow box but is not the same as the run of the mill shadow boxes.
