Memorial Flag Case

My very good friend asked me if I would make a Memorial Flag Case for his brother’s flag, who fought in the Vietnam War. I was extremely privileged to be asked to do this. I know there are many pictures of these cases on this web site, so I’ve only posted one. The other incredible thing about this case build is, a local glass shop Sam Smith and Son Glass, link, ( cut and installed the glass for no charge. Sam said if I wasn’t selling the case, the glass is free. I’d encourage members to patronize this business in Lebanon, Ohio.
Oh by the way, the case is made with red oak, stained with Varathane summer oak, and finished with General Finishes poly. My buddy was extremely pleased with the results and I was extremely honored to do this for one of our brave Veterans.
Thanks for looking.

Great case Jerry. I felt honored too when I built a case for my son-in law who served. He was happy he had a place for some of his service things.

Very nice. I like to use purpleheart, but the oak is lovely. Just in time for Veterans day.
I found a glass shop that would etcetera service branch logo and other info on the glass. Then back fill with gold Rub-n-buf for a gold filled logo.

Very well done Jerry. You should be proud. You did a wonderful job. Like You I’ve had the honor and privilege of building flag cases for 2 decorated WWII veterans. One of the high points of my woodworking life.

God bless them that serve and them that love them!
