This pair of shadowboxes were commissioned to me by a two-star General’s Aide, one for her retirement in February 2014, and the other for her son – the one with just the flag and certificate was flown over Afghanistan for him. The large box with certificate is to be filled with her medals, cord, ribbon rack, and challenge coins, and will be on display during her retirement ceremony.
I purchased the rough-sawn lumber from a wood shop in town that was going out of business, and they told me to look under “Philipine Mahogany” which yielded very little results. After some more research, I believe it to be Meranti, by all of the evidence I see. What a pleasure to work with :)
