I received the first picture from a spouse of a Retiring Marine. She wanted to know if I could build a Shadow box that looked like a Castle.

The second picture is what I sent her back as an example of what a box would look like.

The third picture was taking the the middle of the project.

The last picture was the finished project. It was a blast making this and I really liked the way it turned out.

Hope you all like it too!

The castle is the branch insignia of the Engineers. Their motto is “Essayons”—(Let us try)

Great work !! Would you be willing to make another? My son in law is retired from the Army, and I would love to present him with one.

Have your say...
