Just saw an upload of this same style box and realized I had never posted mine. Made of Oak and Walnut, (walnut splines and base accents)

I get alot of request for this style box.
This particular one houses a 3×5 flag although I have made ones to hold 5×9 flags.

That is a very nice shadow box!!! Looks great.

One suggestion: flip that Private First Class rank around so the chevron is facing up and swap the Army Service Ribbon and National Defense Service Medal around for order of precedence (sorry, I couldnt help it.)

Norm, Just made the box, the rest was done by the costumer, it is no longer in my possesion. I will keep those tips in mind should I ever had to lay one out. Thanks!

A great looking shadow box to pay respect to a great person that served this country. Well done!

good looking box, one question though, where do you get the glass for the triangle(flag)? do you cut it yourself?

Have your say...
