Here’s a standard octogon shadow box. The recipient is a Navy Mustang…a prior enlisted Sailor who eventually earned a commission. At first we were thinking of using the Ford Mustang grill emblem but priced them and they are very proud and the price reflects. I ended up using some scrap walnut and a few mustangs with the scroll saw. Thanks for looking.

Nice work Al.
Where’d you get the blue velvet?

What’s up. I get it at JoAnne off Military Hwy. It’s call frape’ or something like that. It’s much lighter than velvet but has a nice shine to it…comes is several colors.

Very nice, I think the walnut mustangs are better anyway. Very nice work!
