This is a shadow box that was built according to a customer's specifications. It is made of cottonwood and finished with shellac. The second photo shows the back of it. It can be removed by taking out the screws to allow putting things in the box. The glass is actually plexiglass. I thought about using real glass but decided against it because I have to ship this to another state. Another feature I done on this box is the finger joints at the corners. I think it added a nice touch to it. They wound up not being quite as tight as I'd like. The angles on the top proved to be a challenge to me. Overall I think it turned out pretty nice though.
I'm always open to doing custom projects. So, if any of you have something you need built of wood that you can't find elsewhere, contact me. Maybe I can build just what you need.
