This was a commissioned project that I did for a friend who was a Clearance Diver in the Canadian Navy.
The second picture shows the original work that took me over 48 hours to complete (just the stained glass work)
When my friend was moving from Toronto to Borden, the moving company “lost” the piece on him but we later found out that they had dropped it and threw it away (heartbreaking after all that work).
So, my friend asked me to build him another one which I gladly did, but this time I also built him the shipping case to go with it so he had a way to move it safely… I also built the two frames in picture 3 to go with it for him to select from. The replacement piece and woodworking took a little over 52 hours to complete.
The first picture shows the replacement piece in its wooden frame.
The shipping box was a first for me as I had never done finger joints before, but I think they turned out ok for a first timer. He didn’t know I was building the shipping box for it either…
Needless to say, my friend was very happy to receive the second piece and the shipping box to go with it.
