These were late Christmas gifts. They were all made from End Grain Walnut Tiles. The plaque is 2 sided, Marines on 1 side and Air Force on the other.

Very nicely done. Mind if I ask how you did the top decoration?

Hillbilly,

I had them engraved by a gal that engraves trophys and such. We then painted them with a paint from a hobby shop.

They are beautiful well built boxes with a nice personal touch on the engravings.

Thanks Everyone!!

I actually started making these from logs on my place here, saw milling them into cants then slicing the tiles out, drying, remilling them flat and sanding. Part of the reason they were late Christmas Presents. ;)

Very nice and made more special since you milled the wood from your own trees. Not easy-but very rewarding.
