I’ve really got to take better pictures….
This is a shadow box I made as a Christmas present for a running buddy of mine. I made it, his wife is giving it to him.
It is made from Birdseye Maple (Thanks Jeff).
The sides are milled/planed to 1/2” thick. It is roughly 20×16. The framing you see on the front has thin pieces of Walnut in the miter. The miters are keyed with Purpleheart.
You can see the edge of the back in the thrid picture because it was not fully assembled in the pictures (I need to put the glass in, which I need to get cut yet. I like getting my glass when I am done as I will bring the box with me when I go get the glass cut.
Wood: Birdseye Maple, Walnut, Purpleheart
Finish: Wipe on Poly (x7), wax
