I just delivered this Shadowbox/Sword case to a retiring Navy Captain. I have built hundreds of shadowboxes over the years but this is one of the largest I have ever built. As always we design the shadowbox around whatever the customer brings us to ensure that everything fits nicely. With over 30 years of dedicated service to his country this Officer had a lot of memorabilia. My wife designed the layout and installed everything inside. I think she did a great job. The Oak leaf emblem (cut in 3/4” oak) took about 4 hours to cut on my CNC machine and is inset in dados cut into the dividers inside the shadowbox. This is made out of California Oak, stained Early American and finished with clear lacquer. I used a Z Bar hanger (rated at 200lbs) on the back so this can stand on its own or be hung on a wall. The customer was very pleased with the end results.
