The initial picture is of the nine flags that have flown over the city of Nacogdoches, Texas (pronounced Naa-Caw-Dough-Chez), the oldest town in Texas. The picture shows the frontal plate of the Display Case which my club recently designed, fabricated, and assembled in the Convention and Visitors Building in downtown Nacogdoches. The second picture shows the Case, and appears to be curved due to the use of a wide angle lens. The Case is 8 foot high, 16 foot long, and 3 foot deep, and will be used to show natural artifacts from the area. There are 7 inch stars adorning the case, representing the state of Texas. The stars are made of Bois d'Arc (pronounced in these parts as "Bo Dark), often referred to as Osage Orange. The natural gold luster occurs when you coat the wood with a polyurethane immediately after sanding off the top layer. The Case has a substructure of plywood with a front covering of white oak. There are 8 raised panel sliding doors also made entirely of white oak, which are removable, and which interlock to prevent access. My woodworking responsibility was for the design, all the white oak woodworking, the raised panel doors, and all the star and edge covering foo foo.
