I built these display cases for my Dad, Father in law and neighbor. I’ve had Dad’s flag for almost 20 years. I finally knuckled down and got it done. It was, as I imagined it would be a very stressful and emotional project. I had to get it perfect for Dad and Harry. Harry served in WWII with “Merrill’s Marauders”. He was my neighbor for over 30 years, a dear man who past away at the age of 99 last winter. The regular triangle was for my Father in laws flag. These photos really don’t do Dad’s and Harry’s case justice. This is one of the few projects I’ve completed that I’m truly satisfied with the final outcome.

Outstanding, Bob. Simply outstanding. Everything looks like it should,but seldom does: the corner meters are perfect, the finish is just right for those cases the accents are just right and I see you got the plaques finished. Good work, Mr. Bob. Very nice indeed.

Fitting displays for members of the “Greatest Generation”.

I like the panels under the triangle as placement for nameplates.
