My Sgt recently ended his service to the Marines and I wanted to ensure that he would have a nice parting gift since he never received a plaque before.
Simple white oak with a red mahogany stain, and spray on Polyurethane (I have very limited resources here).
over all size is 36 tall by 24 wide 3 deep.
The hardest part about this whole project was cutting the blues perfectly as they were attached to the backboard and the plaque divider was attached to sides of the shadow box. I was a tricky build at first but it all cam out in the end.
The traffic cones are as a reminder of his job duties as a traffic accident investigator.
