Last year my office lost their director to COVID. After a long wait I was approached to build a flag case for his family. The flag was flown on a test mission supporting a project he had previously managed and was a fitting tribute to all of his accomplishments and leadership along the way.

The box was constructed from figured claro walnut with maple dovetails at the top for support. The top was constructed separate and attached with forged nails from Clouterie Rivierre (via Lee Valley). Profiles were made with a compass/ruler and cut with a scrollsaw. Finish was satin poly, brushed on thick enough to fill all the grain and sanded flat.

Looks great. Your personal touches set it off nicely from the usual suspects, and that kind of detail says you care. I believe the family will notice as well. Nice memorial to your Boss.

Very nice! I especially like the shelf.
