this project was for the eagles club in central city nebraska. the family had come to me and asked if i would make a trophy cabinet in memory of jerry cline. They had a family friend that wanted to donate money to make the project. There was a budget so i suggested small and very detailed or big and plain but it would be BIG! They went with BIG! This is actually about 14 ft long and 71/2 ft tall with an eagle and writing in the middle. I did the writing with dark walnut stain and stained the rest in a golden oak. I think it turned out great with the budget we had ( I did donate some time also). i put the lights in it and had it wired to the front door so that it is turned on when it opens. It has shelves up top and cabinet doors below for storage. This was a fun but meaningful project cause this guy was my heating and air guy for years when i was contracting. Hope you like.

They really got a lot with that budget! Great ideas.

Love the eagle, really love the way you accomplished that. The stain idea is super. Very cool….............
