I normally post pictures of wood turning, but I also do other things in the shop rather than just play around on the lathes.
I’m a retired US Navy officer and live in close proximity to a couple of larges military bases, as such I get a lot of jobs from the Air Force and Army.
This was a shadow box for a retiring USAF Chief Master Sergent. It’s made from red oak (not my first choice but it’s what the Chief wanted). The joints are locking joins cut on the RAS, and glued. The chevrons are black oak. It’s finished in Danish Oil and a couple of coats of a hard polyacrylic.
The Chief’s decorations and flag will be mounted by a professional Trophy/Engraving shop in Anchorage (I just do the woodwork, the foofoo stuff I leave to somebody else).
