The 18×18 wood shadow box is a versatile size for a shadow box. The narrow footprint is great for smaller spaces or displays. You can mix and match woods and fabric colors for your shadow box frame to add a dash of color or contrast.
Wood Shadow boxes are a great way to show off a Varsity Letter or Senior Picture. 18×18 Shadow Boxes are perfect for High School or College graduation tassels and Photos. Plenty of room for medals or smaller memorabilia.
Please note: Shadow box dimensions listed are the exterior size.
Subtract 1 1/2″ from the exterior size for the usable interior space. Subtract 1 1/8″ for the usable interior depth.
If you need a custom size for your shadow box, or a slight variation, please Contact Me, and I will be happy to create a display case to suit your needs.
- Special Notice Regarding Walnut:
Strong demand and over harvesting has led to a very real shortage of high quality, dark walnut boards throughout the U.S.. Long lengths of clear lumber, and wider planks are becoming more scarce, with quality logs being harvested for veneer, or export. The result has been boards of narrow width, shorter lengths, with defects such as knots or splits, closer together, and Sapwood being quite prevalent on one face, if not more. I am making an attempt to utilize as much of each board as possible, while creating a product that shows off the natural beauty of this precious material, and wasting as little as possible. Therefore, I am offering walnut as a choice of 2 different “Grades” defined here.
Grade A: Solid Walnut Hardwood with minimal visible sapwood on the exterior of the case. 50% Sapwood will be acceptable for the interior of the box, positioned facing the back side of the case. This material will come at a premium.
Grade B; Solid Hardwood with minimal sapwood. 20% Sapwood will be acceptable for the Exterior of the box, positioned facing the back of the box.
80% sapwood will be acceptable for the Interior of the case, oriented facing the rear of the box. A slight streak of sapwood may be visible on the face of the box. This walnut will be offered at a lower price. Your purchase of a “Grade B walnut case allows me to use more of the Sapwood without throwing out viable material…it also DOES NOT mean you will receive a box that has lots of sapwood in it! In fact it’s highly likely that there will be very little visible conspicuously…you are just allowing me to use these boards more thoroughly.
• A Special Note Regarding Cherry:
Cherry is a hardwood with a Light Red /Brown color and a Fine Grain Pattern. With exposure to light and oxygen, Cherry Hardwood will develop a Patina and darken dramatically over time. You will notice after as little as 30 days that the cherry wood has darkened. Cherry will eventually become a medium/dark reddish brown color on its own. I do not stain these beautiful woods to make a color. Take a look and contact me if you have questions!
