This is a flag case that I gave to my Grandmother for Christmas this year to display my late Grandfather’s flag. He was in the Marine Reserves for 30 years, and served in the Korean War. This was my second woodworking project, and definately the most involved so far. I learned a lot, especially that I needed more clamps. Ha. As soon as she opened it and realized what it was she cried. She loves it. It is made out of Oak and is stained with a dark brown Minwax stain and covered in three coats Poly.
