I was commissioned for this shadow box to highlight his entry in and retirement out of the Air Force. I made each coin holder with mirror backs to better showcase the coins. He wanted pictures included as well as the Air Force slogans at the time. This project was done in cherry with Minwax red mahogany stain and two coats of gloss polyurethane. He wanted to place the three different boxes in various locations in his home.
