Wow, that’s one large shadow box and many years of service to our country. Did you make the ‘wheel’ too. Well done! This will certainly be cherished by the recipient and family for many years to come.

What kind of coating did you apply to the white oak. I would imagine it to be lighter naturally.

Nice job. Looks like that is the deck of USS Wisconsin in Norfolk. What a fitting place for a Sailor’s retirement.
Welcome to LJs and keep the projects coming. I recently transferred out of the Hampton Roads area, hoping to get back down to the area in a few years. Again, nice job on this one.

Great looking shadow box, for a very deserving sailor!
(Looks like that teak deck hasn’t been holystoned in awhile…....!)
