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.

Have your say...
