I made this for a friend whose husband served in Vietnam and has since passed away. She is giving it to her son who is his namesake. It is made from bubinga and finished with an oil rub. She picked the wood for it’s color after I gave her some samples.

Very nice. question on your technique. Do you remove the back or the front to insert the items. If you remove the front, how did you go about that? Thanks,

Great case. Planning to build one for my sister, minus the medals area. Just a flag case. I too am curious if it opens from front or rear.

That’s a wonderful project and I know that she appreciated it. Great work.
