This is just a simple shadow box that I did as a gift to my mom. The box is made out of some left over walnut veneer that I had from my work bench (I am still not done with that project as I have another commision). Corners are mitered and reinforced with biscuits. The front is held in place with small rare earth magnets. Now for the best part, I made this because my mom who is an avid golfer and has been playing for 40+ years hit her first hole in one this past March. She sent me some pictures, the ball, the scorecard and a little plaque that she had made up at the proshop and wanted to commission me to build here something. I refused the commission and built it for her as a gift because she earned this one. Sorry for the quick pictures on this one. I snapped these right before I sent it in time for her birthday.

Dimensions: 14”h x 18”w x 5”d
Plexiglass, Walnut Veneer over MDF.
Finish: tung oil, hand whipped poly and wax

Cool!

But you’d better be careful how you ship it. If that ball falls off the tee she’ll have a hell of a time getting it back on. You gotta shake the box just right… like one of those games that came in a Cracker Jack box.
