This shadowbox is larger than most to hold all the items comfortably. 2nd time I have integrated the coins into the flag enclosure. I like the way it looks and apparently it is gaining interest. It is 35" wide x 23" high.
Wood - Red Oak, stained Red Mahogany.

Paddles are given out as farewell "Plaques" in some parts of the US Navy. These are a few that I have made and some of the custom color combinations available. Standard paddles are Red Oak - stained to color of your choice, and wrapped with cord color of your choice $70. The "Coin-Thru" is an additional $10 with you providing the coin. I will install 2 additional pins or inlay(not thru) coins for free, more than 2 will be $5. Currently have over 52 colors of paracord available.
