I built this flag case to honor my Grandfather. This project was built out of oak. I used a walnut Minwax stain.The best thing is, this was not from a plan. I designed it my self. I had the front panel lasered in woodworking class at the Hanford High School. My grandpas name, navy rank and ship really set this case off. Finished it off, with a couple of pictures of him in the old days while in the service.

Wonderful job honoring a Great Man. My father fought in WW2 also. We owe our lives today to those men.

I love the design on this case… it’s hard to add anything to such a small object without obstructing the material being presented or distracting from it… you did an excellent job.

This is truly a super Tribute piece to your Grandfather and Veteran. I would be humbled if anyone would remember/honor me like this. Your skills are way beyond my world. Superb job.

Oh by the way, I’m a USN Vet and anyone who Honors a Veteran, past, present or future, is A-1 in my book!
