My shadow box

Marie and I went to Michael’s hobby store looking for a shadow box for my flints. What we saw was plastic and quite expensive. So, I decided to make my own.

I had some 1 by 3 lumber that I thought would look just fine. I also had some dark stain that should do the job.

Well, folks, here it is: IMG_0168-1

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.
