This is the inside of an earlier project http://lumberjocks.com/projects/60400 I just finished and will be packing it up to ship. The inside top is a shadow box made of bloodwood with a black felt background to display the ricipients medals and ribbons including the purple heart. The tray is black walnut sides and handle with paduk onder the cutter and a bottom of spanish cedar. The cutter and gauge reminded me of the basic outline of the center of the badge so I tried to carry that out a little more with the vent holes as the lower wreat then added a decorative bit i the corners to allow more venilation. I also had the bomb buzzard and pickaxe emblem done in poduk and on a keyring (the emblem was specifically requested but I couldn’t find one to purchase, so I made one up from a picture and had it lasered.
