I was recently commissioned to build this Double Hatbox for a married couple. She is a retired Navy Senior Chief and he is an active duty Major in the Marine Corps. This is the first double hat box I have built with glass sides. We recently added a commercial laser to our shop and decided to make use of it by laser etching the glass. I added LED lighting over each of the hats. The door on the front has embedded earth magnets to hold it closed. The customers were very pleased with the end result.

I like “navy riveting” on the sides and back! Very cool idea.

It’s a great aesthetic touch, and just feels right for this project. The etched glass was a great addition for capturing the seals and ranks. Your clients will no doubt be thrilled with this.
