This is a shadow box I’ve been working on for some time. It is made for our Wing Commander on the occasion of his departure as our commander. It still needs the plexiglass, patches and badges, and flags. The top portion will hold the US flag and the bottom the NC state flag (we are NC ANG).
The wood is bent red oak. Which is part of what took so long. This was my first attempt at bent lamination (also my second, third and fourth).
The wood is stained with MinWax Gunstocks 231 and finished with MinWax wipe on poly (4 coats).
I am not completely satisfied with the joinery but I don’t think anyone but a woodworker would notice…..much.
