This is a sword display case for a Marine Officer Mameluke sword, made of native Kansas walnut. The case is 46” long 8” high and 5” wide. As you can see from the pictures the top of the case and the sword holder lift up and out of the case (His request). There is going to be a red velvet liner placed in the black of the case and of course glass in the front, the mother of the Marine works in our craft shop on post here at Fort Riley and wanted to do the finish touches to the case for her son. I will try and get a picture when it is all finished and has the sword in it. The last 2 are the finished case.

Awesome job on the case, it is really nice. It reminds me of the time when i was tasked to make a plaque to put a NCO sword on it. We presented it two our Battalion CSM. He loved it. Superb craftsmanship you do excellent work.

Excellent work on the case Bob, I as well love the look of walnut! I see you’re at Fort Riley, I work construction and help build that stretch of highway East of Ogden that bypasses the Fort, of course that’s been a few years back.

Very nice. I really like walnut that has NOT been steamed. Leave a little sapwood on, make it look real!! Perfect.

I’d very much like to see it with the swords in place. I have two of my father’s swords and have been pondering how I’m going to display them. I like your/his idea of the ‘lift out’ Will this be mounted on a wall or a stand?

Some job! Wish I had one like that for both my NCO and Mameluke swords.

Have your say...
