This was a custom job made to display a set of Aston Martin DB9 grills and logo badges. One is made from ash and finished in black using Solar Lux Jet Black dye and Old Masters Spanish Oak stain, top coated with several coats of General Finishes Arm-A-Seal satin. The second box is made of walnut and ash, has ash splines on the boxes mitered corners and an ash inlay on the front frame. It is finished with four coats of GF Arm-A-Seal. Each box contains three mini LED swivel spot lights. The center spot has a 60 degree beam spread. Pegs were turned to hold the grill and a small base was dadoed to hold a piece of lexan to mount the badge on. The units are mounted to the wall using a french cleat.
It was difficult aligning the lights to provide the desired effect. The second box was built a little bigger to improve the lighting.
