By request I went Old School with this display. The original Air Force Symbol Hap Arnold Wings. This display is built in the Intarsia art form I enjoy, every piece is cut out and put together like a puzzle to create the image you see. It’s hard to read the ruler on top but the wing tips are 24-1/4” apart. The wings are Oak, the rest of the box is Alder, the circle is stained with Sadona red. As Always, thanks for looking!

You can’t go wrong with old school here. My dad served from 1947-1973 so the Hap Arnold wings look very familiar to me.

Your portfolio of work is very impressive.

Thanks for sharing.

As an Air Force vet this really appeals to me. Beautifully done.
