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.
