I was recently commissioned to build these shadowboxes for the retirement of a Navy Machinist Mate Chief Petty Officer. The Army shadowbox is for his Dad who was a pilot and served 34 years and retired as a CWO4. The son told me that when his Dad retired he didn’t get anything to commemorate his service. So to correct this the son had me make a special shadowbox with pilot wings inside which was presented to his Dad during the son’s retirement ceremony. I wasn’t there but I was told that this was a very meaningful presentation. I really enjoyed building these boxes and hope they will mean a lot to the recipients.
Both shadowboxes are made from cherry wood and stained red mahogany.
