A Shadow-Box

Marie had read about a shadow-box and thought it would be cool to get one to display a couple of flints and a Certificate of Authenticity in our living room.

We visited Michaels Arts and Crafts to see if they had them. They did, but the one we thought appropriate was just too expensive.  I knew I could make one in my shop for a lot less.

So, with some 1” by 3” lumber, some stain and Polyurethane, I made a nice box. Un fortunately, I can’t show you a picture of it. Live Writer has a problem with any picture having a large dark area showing…like Gusset House and again this one. 


George and his wife, Marie, sailed professionally, chartering boats in the Bahamas, then in the Virgin Islands. They then leased an uninhabited island, Little Thatch, in the British Virgin Islands, and turned it into a small hotel. After six years, they left the island and bought a lovely beachfront property on Jost Van Dyke (BVI) where they built Sandcastle Hotel and the original Soggy Dollar Bar. George is now the author of Incredible Virgin Island Adventure: A True Story.
