To be able to honor a few lifelong friends, classmates and fellow veterans for their dedication and sacrifices to our country, has always been a goal of mine. To have the talent to produce a personalized, from the heart, piece was pudding on the cake. This Spring I started making these flag display cases with the intention of surprising them at our yearly mini class reunion gathering at the Ohio Vietnam Memorial. However, Hurricane Florence prevented me from traveling. Not wanting to wait a full year, I decided to mail the cases. All have been received and are on proud display. Mission accomplished.

Ironically, all five branches of Service are represented – me being the Army draftee.

Woods: Zebrawood, Lacewood, Walnut, White Oak, Cherry and Curly Ash.

I splined the miters with our high school colors…Purpleheart and Holly.

They look great. I am sure the recipients love them. Thanks for including the USCG, we are often left out.

Excellent build. Thanks for your service. Any details on the build you could share? Hinges on the front? If so, what kind? How did you handle replacement glass? What material did you use for the back panel? Sorry for so many questions, but I’m in a paralysis by analysis funk. Thanks in advance for any consideration you can give this matter.
