Lumber Jocks and Guests,

Here is a Retirement Shadow Box Table I built for one of the Pentagon professionals. It is made of solid poplar and birch plywood and stained with Rustoleum Walnut stain.

Hope you like it.

Woody,
How are you mounting the bottom of the shadow box piece? For normal shadow boxes I use a rabbet cut to counter sink but can’t decide how to do this for a table.

AI,
I cut the rabbet for the sides, bottom, back and front on the table saw prior to to assembling the body and installing the legs. Another option is to not rabbet the shadow box and install a strips of wood all around the table at 2” down from the top. This will also provide the a place where the top of the drawer can ride especially with the ones where I didn’t make an integrated drawer slide. Either way works fine. Hope this helps. Send me an e-mail woody1492@live.com if you have any questions.
