JUNEAU- An upstart Juneau company is doing its part in helping commemorate one of the biggest deals in Hollywood history.
   
Shawn Woods owns NSEW Awards, a glass engraving business that's only been in business for 14 months.
   
But he landed a big project, helping personalize 40 palm-size crystal replicas of the Millennium Falcon, Han Solo's spaceship from the "Star Wars" movies.
   
The client is the accounting firm Ernst and Young, which last year helped finalize the purchase of Lucasfilm Ltd. - makers of six "Star Wars" films - by The Walt Disney Co. for $4.06 billion.
   
It will take Woods about seven hours to personalize each of the 40 Millennium Falcons in the order.
