I built 2 of these display cases for the children of a good friend that left this earth too early. He was a terrific golfer and played on one of the smaller golf tours for a while. His brother wanted to give his nephews something to remember their Dad.
It’s made with walnut and has a removable section that allows the clubs to be removed. The glass door is held closed with rare earth magnets and the door pull is turned on the lathe to resemble a golf tee. The picture was produced on aluminum and should last forever.

Nice job. I’m sure your friend would be proud of what you did for his sons.

This is a wonderful memorial piece for a friend. I’m sorry for your loss and I’m sure that his children will cherish them.
