Find out how to build one from Morgan House Woodprojects. It is essential to make items for insertion into the military-themed shadowbox like the US Air Force shadowboxes. The objects will form the main focus of the display. Cut off all holders, pins or closures on ribbons, patches, medals, flags, pips, or insignia. The items will lay in a flat position against the backboard. Remove the long chain on pet tags, or roll the chain to free up the space. The chain that is smaller can be left in place if there is room. Be sure to clean all items. Make sure you wear gloves while handling things. For a beautiful pattern make sure you take your time when you lay out the items on your backboard. Once you have decided on where pieces will go, do not tape or glue them to the backs. If you decide on making rows, you should use a ruler to make sure the tops of the items will form a neatly straight line. To make sure that none of the items get lost, gently place the top of the shadowbox. Once everything is neatly arranged then glue or attach the backboard to the object’s sides. Attach the cover to it by fastening the cover. Clean the frame and glass. ojrrf6fnj4.
