Military Shadow Boxes

I started two different Shadow boxes last weekend. They are all put together with 1/2 blind Dovetail joints. The three flag one I used just a very light stain and the the two flag one will be done with a very dark oak.. They will also have three coats of Poly clear coat at the end. I have a lot more work this weekend on them..

Great design and build Mike! Have been looking for a shadow box plans/designs that would display the final flag, badges, and emblems, all in one case. Did you use the dimensions from a "sample" or adjust that design to fit your needs? Thanks for sharing, and be safe.

All the shadow boxes I make are custom sized to fit what ever they need in them.. Most fall end around 30" x 24" size...
