A military shadow box is a display case for flags, medals, captured
German Lugers (yes, he has one), etc. I am making one, at my Grandma's
request, for my Grandpa. <snip>
I'd rather not wing it, so again, does anyone have such a plan?
Gods above. My stuff has lived in a dresser drawer since '81.
They've never conmplained so I figure they're happy there. There is a
Joint Chiefs of Staff ID badge tho that I've always felt would make a
neat belt buckle - but that'll never happen. I'm just glad my mother
doesn't know where they are, just in case she gets an idea that "I"
would like a shadow box. I spent 18 months in Nam and if I want to look
at them I damn sure prefer going to the drawer to look instead of
looking at a wall. Well actually, wouldn'l, because they'll all still
be in the drawer. I don't suppose anyone asked your grandpa his
I 'have' considered making a flag case, with space for medals, et
al, just in case one of my sons wants to display 'em later. But,
that'll be their choice.
Plenty of free plans on-line, google is your friend - shadow box
