This shadow box was made for a retiring Master Chief Boatswain’s Mate from TN. I used oak and walnut for the construction. The wheel itself was put together using through tenons made from walnut. I selected walnut for the tenons strictly for contrast purposes. The small crossed anchors are made from Indian rosewood. The inside diameter of the wheel is 21.5 inches with an overall size of 42 inches approx.
I reversed the colors when I made the anchors again for contrast. I only used the oak for small high lights of the anchors to give them depth and texture.
Pardon the reflection on the glass.
