This was a fun one to build. This is made of Sapele with an rubbed oil finish. To make, I built the front facing from 1/2inch stock. I built the back framing out of four pieces of 2 1/2 inch wide stock and made a rabbet cut to flush mount the 1/4 inch backer board. This one was for a retiring Marine F-18 pilot.

Nicely Done,
I always like seeing your work.
BTW where do you get the crushed velvet?
