This is a shadowbox I originally made for myself, but ended up re-doing the inner display to give to another EOD tech. It is made out of jarrah and I used bent form lamination to make the curved sides. The cross piece towards the top of the case is a through mortise and tenon with wedges to provide strength to the case.

Just one…..those are my awards before I swapped them out. A friend’s wife wanted that style box for her husband’s retirement, but I had already packed up my tools due to PCS move. So I took ok my awards out and replaced them with his. I will make one again for myself someday….

Awesome project; the workmanship is very fitting for a Marine whose skill in his trade is so dependent on his hands.

And by the way, thanks for what you do…I did two tours as a grunt and respect the hell out of EOD Marines. The four I worked with were the ballsiest, coolest guys I knew.

Awesome shadowbox; I spent my last tour in Afghanistan assigned to an EOD unit. I have tons of respect for those guys and their fellow EOD techs no matter the branch. Thank you for your service.
