Shadow Box

I built this shadow box for my late grandfather. He was a Fightin’ Texas Aggie (as am I) to the core! I wanted to display his Aggie ring along with his favorite beanie in a unique way and this is what I came up with. As you can see, his ring has been sufficiently worn down over the last 80 years and is a one of a kind ring! I included a picture of our rings together…hopefully one day mine will look like his!

The ring stand is made up of dowels glued together in a somewhat random pattern and the box is made from walnut. His initials FAM II were scroll sawed into the frame as well.

I plan to add a cross along with a fishing pole, but ran out of time for the moment. I will update the pictures once I finish, but for now this is what I have!

Thanks for looking!

Yeah, pretty awesome project. I know some Aggies. Something about Texas that Texas people just love!
