◊ This MadMoose Shadow Box has outside dimensions of 20" x 16.5" x 3"; the net inside dimensions are about 17.5" x 14" x 2"

◊ the pocket for the cap is 9.5" x 9.5" x 2" deep and the pocket for the tassel is 2" wide x 14" tall x 2" deep; the dividers are 1/2" x 2"

◊ this shadow box has a clear Acrylic (plexiglas) front which slides out of one of the short sides of the box to allow access

◊ the box is created from Reclaimed Wood boards [usually cedar] milled to approximately 1¼" thick and 3" wide and mitred at the corners

◊ the Reclaimed Wood [usually cedar] will vary in color and character from board to board and frame to frame and will show off signs of previous use such as color variation, nail holes, insect tracks, knots, open knots, staining, traces of paint, size variation & etc—differences in this character will make each frame unique

◊ if you select the "unfinished" option we will sand and prepare the wood, but not apply any stain or finish; this is a great option if you wish to customize the piece yourself.

◊ if you select the "clear finish" option we will apply an all-natural Clear Hard Wax Oil finish which will highlight the natural character of the wood.

◊ if you select one of the finish colors then we will apply the same Hard Wax Oil mixed with a natural pigment, which highlights the wood's character, and also creates a more uniform color tone.

◊ for easy hanging we attach a French Cleat

◊ there are multiple options for the back of the shadow box; the pricing for these options is by the drop down box near the quantity drop down at the top of this page-you will need to select one of these options to add the item to your cart:
• Natural MDF (unfinished 1/2" thick)
• Reclaimed Wood (finished with hard wax oil 1/2" thick)
• Barn Wood (naturally weathered & unfinished 1/2" thick)
• Cork (1/4" thick with 1/4" hardboard backer behind)

◊ the backers are firmly stapled into place

◊ each shadow box is individually crafted and signed on the back by the craftsman/woman who created it
