Wood And Materials Used
Peruvian walnut with birdseye maple inlays
My uncle passed away earlier this year and my aunt was given a display case for his memorial flag. She told me that it had rough corners and asked if I could clean them up a little. It turns out that it was made of mdf and the “woodgrain” was a printed vinyl tape so there was no way to clean it up.
I asked her if she would allow me the opportunity to make something for him and to help honor the man he was.
The time spent making this was spent reminiscing about him and the times that we spent together. It was very rewarding and I think a perfect way to memorialize him.
Thanks for looking; I hope you like it.

Beautifully done. I imagine this was difficult and very rewarding to build. Well done.
