Veterans Jewelry Box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Veterans Jewelry BoxI have been wanting to make this for my friend Bill for a long long time. A Veteran of Vietnam as an Air Force medic, I wanted to honor him for his faithful service during a very trying and dangerous time.However, sourcing the medallions was the long pole in this tent. These metal/brass/porcelain medallions and plaques are of superb quality, but are no longer made. So finding NOS items are extremely difficult. And finding an Air Force set was near impossible. A year after starting the search, one popped up in Alaska and I was able to complete the box.The wood is curly black walnut, grain matched around the corners, even the removable tray. The tray and box are felt lined and the tray has a ring holder. Finished with tung oil and several coats of hard paste wax.I will have the pleasure of presenting it to him day after tomorrow....rookieII

Fractal Burned Pecan ShoehornThis is a shoehorn shaft I turned in Arizona and I ran out of kits so I brought it home. I wanted to see what one would like with the Lichtenburg Fractal figures all down it so I burned it and inlaid it with turquoise paint.it is finished with semi gloss lacquer.Cheers, Jim
