Here’s a new customer request. The CMSgt Stripe as a retirement shadowbox. This is the first time I’ve done one with intarsia. The front face is 49 pieces of wood. I think it turned out well. Some of the pieces could have fit a little tighter but for the most part, I think it looks good. It’s solid Mahogany with raised Oak inlays.. Thanks for looking. Enjoy! If you have any questions about this design or any of my displays, please feel free to e-mail me! From the Customer: Dave, I just opened the shadow box and I could not be happier with it! Except for a very minor scuff it made it in perfect condition. Thank you, thank you! I can’t tell you how much like it….Jim

I think you did a great job on this. I really like it and I bet the customer did too.

I’m impressed. Beautiful work. Being a USAF veteran, I love to see this kind of work that honors Vets. Thank you for sharing.

Fantastic job. I’m sure you’ll make that CMsgt quite the happy person. Being a retired veteran myself, I know the pride that a well-done shadow box engenders and I’m sure this one will be no exception.

Turned out Great!! I’m working on a MSgt case but have never done one in intarsia. Looks like alot of work, but well worth it.

Great shadow box. Can you make one for a SMSgt. Can you please let me know what the cost is and the turn around for delivery. I have a great friend that is retiring in Jan 2016 and would really love to be able to present this to her. Would also like it to be in the ABU colors the same as you used for the Chief’s shadow box.
