I just finished this box for a shipmate that retired at the beginning of the year. I try to build Shadow Boxes that nobody else has. I feel that each career is unique, so your box should be too!

The last picture was the draft I created to make this box.

I use my dremel with an acrylic cutting wheel to make the cutsc. You are never limited to the type of cut you can make, as long as you have the patients to take your time.

This was difficult box to build….only because in my family we are all Raider fans! Had to bear down and make a sacrifice! I would do it again in a heartbeat!
