Fellow wood junkies! I have a commission for a circular shadow box for a retiring Navy Master Chief. I have my ideas about how to go about doing it, and it involves a bunch of bridle joints, but I need to make it about 3” thick to accommodate the flag. so probably not just as simple as making templates, etc… Has anyone here done something similiar, and if so what advice can you give me? I am waffling on how to install the glass, etc… I would love to hear from those who have gone before me in this adventure.

I did this dodecagonal frame for a lighted plate, with the face piece it’s about 2¾” thick. That face frame made it way easier to route in the inset for the plate and install the plate from the back.

I will probably do some sort of faceplate. Thanks. Still not 100% on the rest of it but that does help!

Have your say...
