Commemorative Chest commissioned for a retiring Navy Master Sergent with 30 years service. It was constructed from Alder and stained to match existing decor. The outside was a Java General Finishes Gel Stain coated with a precat satin lacquer. The inside, just a clear water based ML Campbell Satin lacquer. Both the box and tray feature dovetail joints. The tray and lid feature a matching blue velvet. The only thing I can’t take credit for is the layout and placement of the medals and ribbons for the display in the lid.
