I have built many shadowboxes and sword cases over the last 18 years but this is the first 4 flag sword case I have been asked to do. This design presented some unique challenges but I am very happy with the end results. Due to deployment requirements the customer did not give me much time to work with (6 days) prior to his retirement ceremony so I had to burn the midnight oil a bit to get it done but I was able to finish it just in time. This is made from Cherry, stained red mahogany and finished with clear lacquer.

I can see a corpsman having the USN and USMC flag… but not sure what the middle flag is??

Matt, the middle flag is the Philippine flag. That is where this individual is from.
