I built this for one of my brothers-in-law a few months ago, but waited to give it to him for Christmas. He’s been in the National Guard for 20+ years and after already serving one tour in Iraq has decided to retire this year. This was my way of thanking him for what he’s done. I wasn’t sure whether he would want to hang it on a wall (it’s heavy) or use as a centerpiece on their dining room table so I didn’t attach any hardware to it until he saw it. After this picture was taken I mounted feet on it with a 1/2” forstner bit and round button screw caps. Size is 13” x 24.5” x 1” and made of Purpleheart, Bloodwood and Maple.
