This was a Massive Cherry Shadow box nearly 36”x36”x2.75”. I have been comissioned to make several “State Shadow Boxes” but this is by far the largest of them.

Very unique approach to a shadow box. Would it be safe to assume you’re using acrylic rather than glass?

I usually only use double strength glass in my boxes. This and others that I have done that have a high stress angles I use a 1/8 laminated safety glass that is far more stable. I use a Diamond ring saw to cut it.

Amazing work! I would like to have a shadow box like this myself.

Have your say...
