I made this for my wifes work , A fellow employee had to go to Iraq and was one of the 1st to take over Sadam Husains palace .This flag was flown on top of palace .

Its made from Steamed Quilted Cherry,Walnut and curly Maple, I used crushed Navy blue velvet inside with a beveled glass front. The frame inside the box is suspened 1 1/4” off of the velvet.

What a wonderful case. What did you use to hold the flag, It looks like some kind of a hook.

What a beautiful frame, it’s quality and beauty are a perfect representation and equal to the service and sacrifice that was put out by this individual and all our troops over there. You make the best and most elegant frames I’ve ever seen, not only on lumberjocks, but anywhere. The wood, the craftsmanship, the overall beauty of this piece is an excellent match to this flag and the story behind it. Way to go my friend. Excellent work!!!!!!!!! No made in China sticker here. LOL
