Here is my latest custom request. The F-16 Fighter Jet as a retirement shadowbox! It was a great challenge that I feel turned out great! It’s Solid Oak and the missles are solid oak with walnut for the lines (turned on the lathe). The flag is 3’x5’. Apporximatly 40”H x 25”W. Thanks for looking. Enjoy! If you have any questions about this desin or any of my displays, please feel free to e-mail me! Message from the Customer: “Because my husband is a woodworker himself and my grandfather owned his own cabinet making business, I know woodworking and look for quality craftsmanship. I agonized over the design and triple-checked every detail with you before giving you the go-ahead. I knew my husband wouldn’t be satisfied with something mediocre and I was expecting a pretty awesome shadowbox from you. To my amazement, when I unpacked the box I was looking at an incredibly awesome piece of art. It exceeded my expectations, which were high to begin with, and I know my husband is going to be blown away by this one-of-a-kind (for now, anyway), high quality shadowbox.”

This is really cool. I have been trying to do something like this but as an M1A1 Tank.

Well done, I like that this is really different than most on here. I was an Ex F-14 Tomcat guy. USS Enterprise CVN65

Nice work.

Since I worked on 3 different Airframes during my career picking one fora shadow box would be tough. But I enjoyed my Stealth time the most. But I think I’ll keep my Stripes box.
