This is a military retirement shadowbox with attached flag holder and a matching flag holder I made for a retiring US Navy Sailor.
The wood is more of the Indian dontknow I use in most of my projects.
The shadowbox and holder stand 42 inches tall.
The shadowbox itself is 22 by 28 inches.
This is my latest submarine coin holder. I added bow planes to this one for a little more effect. I used Dark Mahogany stain with a gel polyurethane coating. The last picture is with one of my black painted submarines next to the stained one for a contrast.
Got a commission to make a display for a Navy Dive Knife.
Wood is Indian Dontknow (it's from Indian and I don't know what species it is.)
The base is bookmatch cut glued with 5 min epoxy, routed with an ogee bit, sanded to 320 grit using a 48" belt sander and a sanding mop, then 1 coat of 2#...
