Rabbeted & Ready

Sized, Rabbeted, and ready for mitering, these Walnut frame members will soon be four shadowboxes.  They will be given Red Oak splines and Red Oak glass stop trim.  When finished, the shadowboxes will display the clients array of military honors along with pictures and other memorabilia.  More to come.

Starting with cardboard templates, a plywood mock up was fashioned.  A full size blueprint was then drawn from the mock up, and the frame & door pieces were made from tracings taken from the drawing.  The frame parts were assembled and dry fit on the boat, new measurements were taken, and an adjustable mock up was made, taken to the boat, and fine tuned for a precise fit.

Based on the adjusted final mock up, the frame was ready for assembly, and we were finally ready to fashion the door pieces and assemble them as well.

Now we were ready for the Natural Teak finish, mortising in the hinges, and placing the windows, and the drip shield.

And last but certainly not least, the final installation!
