shadow box chest I built for a Marine retiring after 22 years. This was the second attempt at a curved lid. Came out pretty good this time.

Very nice. The hardware selection complements the chest well. The recipient will be very proud. “Bravo Zulu”

Very nice. I noticed the progression of promotions at the top part of the lie. Well done!
