I have the honor of being the guy to make retirement and other milestone gifts for our firefighters. This was a flag case and shadow box for a good friend who is retiring after 32 years. I’ve known him all of those 32 years and worked with him 27. We had his party tonight and I’ve waited to post this as a project until he got this at his party. It is made of walnut with BLO finish. Thanks for looking.

Awesome job Bill. Even better handmade by a coworker.
