A missile badge tap handle for a kegerator. Hourglass shape cut out of a piece of oak then used a laser burner to put in the missile and stars.

What type of laser engraver do you have?

We used one that we have at the shop where I work. We tried to get it as centered as possible but missed badly. Fortunately we used a smaller image so I was able to even out the image but the threaded piece at the bottom came out off center.

Nice tap handle. I gotta ask you a question.
Are you an X1, X2 or X3?

I am an X1 teaching at the school house at Vandenberg AFB. First assignment was Malmstrom. I am working on a plan for a missile badge shadow box. Have you ever seen one?

I have not seen a missile badge shadowbox. You should make one, I’d like to see it. I have made a large missile badge (as a gift from the shop) for a guy that retired, http://lumberjocks.com/projects/21924, but made him a MSgt shadowbox. Both were a first for me at the time. There are several LJ’s on here that make specialized military shadowboxes. They may have made one.
I am a retired X3. Spent my whole career at Minot. Good luck with the shadowbox. I look forward to seeing the finished project.
