I was recently requested to build this hat box for a newly selected Chief Petty Officer. The carvings on the side are that of a Master At Arms Badge, the Expeditionary Warfare Pin and the Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist device. The top has the rank insignia of a Navy Chief Petty Officer. This is the second hat box I have done with a flag in it and I really like the way it looks, especially once you put the actual CPO Combination Cover inside. The light inside is a simple LED puck light. The box is made from cherry and stained red mahogany.
