Last week we had a ‘Church for men Sunday’ with the emphasis on Bow Hunting. A gentleman in the church who owns a bow shop decked out the auditorium with everything ‘Bow & Hunting.’

I wanted to thank him for what he did so I made this shadow box for him with two very old arrow heads.

The wood is paduak and maple. I used decal material to label the arrows. Lexan is the ‘glass.’

Great shadow box and the displayed artifacts are nicely presented. I’m sure the recipient was very grateful and appreciative.

Beautiful box. It reminds me of hunting for arrow heads with my Dad when I was a kid.
