Retirement Shadow Box

Question

My boss is retiring in a few months...after I leave, of course. I asked him what he wanted for his shadow box and he gave me the specs. For those who don't know what a shadow box is, it is a traditional gift presented to a retiring member that contains bits and pieces of their careers. His specs were a triangle with three flags: American, Air Force, and Florida. I sketched up a diagram, asked his approval, and a buddy and I started on it this weekend. An absolutely gorgeous red hue to the cedar we are building it from. I'll post more pics as we progress. Right now, we just have to cut the glass, glue, and stain. We should finish it up next weekend! :)
