A Slew of Shadow Boxes:

Sunday, October 24th, 2010

I don’t know if it’s serendipity, or the ebb and flow of the internet, but it seems I get a bunch of the same sort of work all at once. Shaker coffee tables in cherry last month, this week, it’s shadow boxes. For instance, consider following picture. The gray boxes with cherry frames and custom shelves was a commission for a woman who is dividing up her husband’s model car between her four children as a memento to the gentleman. The tall black box with a dark oak frame and upholstered insert is for a brass doorknob collection. Finally, the small one with the mahogany frame is for the sailor’s hat a woman’s father wore in the USN during WWII and the Korean war, as well as various organizational & social pins.
