This shadow box design is my most feared (and simplest) as I have done 2 of them and on both occasions, cut off the tip of my left index finger, yes both times the same finger at 6 months apart. This is also the first display that I started hiding magnets in the frame to hold the door closed and barrel hinges for a seamless look. The flag case is also my “signature” design with simple cuts. I have also built the miniature chocks on several occasions. They are all made of solid Mahogany and glass. Thanks for looking. Enjoy! If you have any questions about this design or any of my displays, please feel free to e-mail me!

I think I would stop at 2. It must be something with shadowboxes and left index fingers. I did the same thing several years ago, only because I was in a hurry and being careless.

Once again, everything looks great.

Nice work! How did you get the fingertip to grow back?

I had an occasion that called for a small gift for a senior officer…the chocks were the perfect gift idea. I made a second set to hold a few coins. Everyone that has seen them says they are the neatest thing. Thanks for the idea!
