I built this saber case as a present for my best buddy who was in the Corps of Cadets at Texas A*M University. It will house his family’s saber, which has been passed down through 3 generations of aggies. The case is made of maple with a mahogany back. I decided that I really wanted to use big finger joints, but I was also stubborn about the case being octagonal. So I ended up with 135 degree box joints. Go figure… I used a 3/4 bit on my router with a special shop made jig do do the joints.
