my mother asked me to make this flag box for a friend of hers who recently passed. i never had the honor of knowing the man so i dont have any stories to go with it. im just glad to have gotten it done before christmas. the wood is all cherry with cherry stain to darken the tone. all the joints save the top are reinforced with dowels. she didnt ask for anything fancy she was just expecting a triangle so i thought itd be nice to add the carving.

Cherry is a hard wood to do lettering. You did a beautiful job. I know it will be appreciated. All our WWII vets are heros in my eyes. They did amazing things for us and our country.

Nice work! Always important to recognize honorable Americans who preserved the freedom we enjoy and seldom think about. That freedom enables such wonderful things. When you offer the box to your mother’s friend you might consider acknowledging that the honored Sailor made it all possible through his own sacrifice. Thanks for sharing.
