I made this shadowbox chest for a GySgt that recently retired. Used pine wood and the hardware I got from an online antique hardware store. Came out pretty good. He was very happy with it

Welcome to Lumberjocks, looking at the Devil Dog banner hanging on the wall, I is not hard to figure out
how you were able to come up with the small posters in the chest. Thanks to both you and the gunny
for your service to our country.
