This was auctioned off last year for charity, I offered to build the winning bidder something but left open just what it might be. I finally finished it and will auction another build tomorow (god knows what the next one will be). I wanted this one to be a center piece when the unit got together to toast absent friends and reminis about their victories and heartbreaks doing a very dangerous job.
This one is a humidor in the top, lined in Spanish cedar. The lower part holds a crystal decanter with the units logo and the doors hold 24 small glasses with EOD badges engraved in each. Behind the decanter is a carving of the EOD memorial and the inside of the humidor lid has a carved EOD badge. The case is european walnut. The shelves are rosewood with Black walnut rails pinned on with brass rod. The blasting handle is made from the handle of a Cricket bat because the unit is in the UK.
