Here is a project I just finished. A military souvenir box. Another variation of my treasure chest which seems to have become my “signature” box style. Not a big box but Packed with features. First it’s 14X8X7. Large enough for those special items. Next the lid graphic. Not just drawn on the lid but actually carved in and colored. Notice the front? There is room for six medals, photographs or anything you like. It has a plexiglass window inlaid to keep them protected and displayed. Easily changed. Now on the inside. Lined with “camo” felt on the bottom. A shelf rest designed to hold and display those challenge coins. It evens comes out to display them separate. The outer box is stained with red oak and three coats of gloss poly. Inside inserts just the gloss poly. The graphic is colored with sharpie marker prior to clear coating. The corners are mitered and secured with dowel inserts for strength. Thanks all for looking!
