I just finished this project for a Naval Aviator that is about to retire. This design includes a Puck Light built into the top as per the customers request. The burial flag installed in this display is the customers fathers and was presented to him at a military funeral with full honors. The brass from the rounds fired during the 21 gun salute are tucked into the folds of the flag. This shadowbox is made from California Red Oak, stained Early American and finished with clear lacquer.
