This is the finished project, complete with the door in the shape and styly of a USAF MSgt stripes and the shadow box/flag display case behind.

This design is by Pat Cavanaugh, a fellow LJ.

The stripes are Walnut on Maple. The shadow box/flag case is Aspen.

It is hung using a French Cleat recessed behind the Flag Case.

The finish is BLO, shellac (x2), and wipe-on-poly/BLO/mineral spirits (1/3 each).

Stripes (Door) 18-1/2”W x 25”H
Shadow Box 15-1/2”W x 10-1/2”H x 3-1/2”D
Flag Case 15-1/2”W x 7-3/4”H x 3-1/2”D

I ant to thank Pat for the help he gave me.
