A couple of flag cases commissioned by a good friend.
1st one for his wife’s grandfather done in red birch (with a little figure) with cherry splines and base.
2nd one for his father, who hasn’t passed yet (hence: no dates) done in Koa with walnut slines and base.
made a simple jig to get the 62.5 bottom miters and also made some clamping jigs to glue this thing together. That was a bitch when I tried to use titebond. After switching to epoxy, things went together somewhat smoother because I had a little more time to get it together..
Finished with four coats of a penetrating oil made from equal parts Tung, Poly, and MS.
