The desk was built with help of the
VX-31 aircrew (Pilots and NFOs) and their families.
Different individuals / families would come to my shop every
Tuesday and Wednesday night and some weekends for about a
year ...so it was a project that many help to make - I acted
as the designer, the foreman ...and also created a lot of
the desk. It displays the VX-31 Squadron logo and the
symbols of the Navy and Marine Corps. It also has several of
the modern weapon systems on the front of the desk. There is
no paint or stain, all the colors are inlayed woods with a
clear finish. I did not get paid for this, my labor was a
gift to the squadron as an expression of appreciation for
what our military does.
