This was requested for a wounded in action Marine EOD tech by his brother, I was happy to ablige. I have not completed the inside, it will include a small shadow box with his medals including the purple heart. I tried to pick my best figured walnut I had for the case, and the lift is made of two peices of bloodwood. The badge on top is the same I normally make but I’m going to also add a laser engraving of the “buzzard bomb and pick design” I’m having that tested now to see if it will engrave correctly (if not I’ll handmake one for the shadow box inside. When I finish the inside I will add pictures.)

Your work – especially the emblems – is fabulous! And for a very worthy cause.

Thanks for looking and the comments. This site can definately keep me humble as I look at the projects that others post in amazement at the skills I have yet to learn. I hope I can one day reach half as high as some of the woodworkers that grace these pages daily.
