Flag case sized to fit a standard memorial flag folded to military standard. Made from cherry. The dark wood in the canter of the front is walnut. It appears the walnut was intentional, but such was not the case. I wish I could say it was the only measuring mistake (exactly one inch short) I ever made but then I would be lying. Used biscuits to strengthen the end grain butt joint. Presented to a friend who’s WW2 vet dad recently passed.

Way to turn a mistake into a feature, well done! Looks completely intentional. I tend to want to throw my projects into the wood chipper when I make a mistake…
