Hi fellow Lumberjocks and guests,

This was my second shadow box table. It is made of solid walnut. This project took me about 100 hours to complete and I am extremely happy with the results as well as people who saw it at the retirement ceremony and most importantly, the person I made it for. Hope you all like it.

Very nice. I like how you used the hat brass as the drawer pull.

OUTSTANDING piece to recognize an outstanding individual and his / her years of dedicated service! Well done.

Hats off to all the men and women in uniform – past, present and veterans.

Great looking table! Walnut was a good choice for this project. Ditto what Pat said about the drawer pull. Thanks for posting.

I love this table. How much and how long would it take to get one for my Colonel that is retiring??

I think I have looked at this piece at least 100 times… Very nice work! I have been searching for unique shadow boxes that can double as end tables for my wife and I to display our careers. She is still in the reserves so I like the easy access to change the ribbons as needed. I hope to start building something similar after I get some more experience with making drawers for other projects.

I really like the style of this project!

I’m working on something similar for my father, who will be retiring from the USAF after 39 years in a few weeks. I’m wondering where I can buy the velvet material used in your display. Thank you in advance for your help!

Glad you like it. I got the velvet material in Michael’s, you may be able to find it at any other fabric store as well. 39 years is quite an achievement. Best wishes to your father in his retirement. Hope your table turns out well. I would like to see pictures of the completed table. Woody1492@live.com
