Shadow Box

Above you can find a picture of my shadow box that I made in my Industrial Design class. Starting with five separate pieces of wood I made all of the measurements necessary before I cut the pieces to size. After I cut them, I was able to glue and then sand the box that I had created. As I waited for my box to dry, I sourced a piece of plastic from the shop and engraved the word “LOVE” on the bottom half of the plastic. The last few details were staining my box and simply sanding it a few more times. The picture that I chose is very special to me. Here I am sitting at a ball game with both of my grandpa’s- all of us having a great time. In a span of 3 months this year I lost both of them and life has been hard without them. This box stays on our kitchen counter and is always something I love seeing in the morning.
