no previous part Part 1 of making a shadow box chest series no next part

__My husband is retiring, soon, after 24 years of service in the US Navy and I am in search of something special for him in terms of a shadow box. I am new to this site and have never “blogged” before so, here goes. I recently found a shadow box chest, a most impressive one I might add, on this web site and I would love to be able to find someone to make the same for me. Since I am new to this site it will not allow me to message the individual for information on this particular item so, I wanted to know if anyone has any suggestions for me as to how I can find someone to make this chest. The gentlemens name on here is poated as ” jevarn71”. The chest has a beautiful curved glass lid. I would loe to post a pic but I’m not really sure how to do it on here. Anyway, any suggestions are appreciated, thank you!

I sent him a message for you letting him know you’d like to hear from him. Good luck.

If you live on or near a Navy or other military base, see if they have a wood hobby shop.
If so, someone there will be glad to help you out.

Mrs. Jaegers, I would love to be able to build something for your husband. Unforturnately, I am currently stationed in the U.K. and wouldn’t trust that it would be safe in shipping back to the U.S. Not to mention if you went with something like the chest, shipping would most likely be cost prohibitive. As Farrout suggested, if you could find a local wood hobby shop, I’d be happy to give them any advise they may need, I have done this already in the past. Best of luck! Jason
