Just came across this on the computer. I made this for the burial flag of a friend that passed away awhile back. He lived next to my mom and step dad. His oldest son was a good friend of mine. He had a heart of gold and would do anything for you.
The case is made out of walnut. The shell casings are from his 21 gun salute. He was a military veteran. When I found out that his wife had them, I thought it would be nice to display them with the flag. The pictures aren’t very good and I didn’t take as many as I should have. I was in a hurry to get it in the mail. It was sad while making it, but I was honored that I got to do it for him and his family.
