Here are two shadow box frames that I recently made. They are both made of maple with plywood backs.
The cross is raised up from the back one inch to give the appearance of “floating” in the frame. It is approximately 12” wide and 24” long and 6” deep.
The plate is a collectors item and in order to maintain the value of the plate I did not want to use any tapes or adhesives to hold it in place. I accomplished this by using an additional piece of plywood in the back and cutting a hole in it and the matte to allow the bottom of the plate to sit in the hole. The white matte in the front is held in by two additional vertical strips giving more of a shadow appearance.
