Finally made something for myself. I’m really happy with how it turned out. I used walnut with maple splines. Finished with BLO and some paste wax.

This is a nice wood choice to show off a very important piece of Marine Corps history. Good work Marine.

Very nice. I built one of these for a Air Force Saber. They can be a little tricky. You did a great job on it.

Thanks everybody for the comments. I did find some tricky spots in this build, made many changes in design as I went.

This looks nice, I love the joinery in the corners. I hope you don’t mind but I am going to need to make one of these for my NCO sword which currently resides in my closet.

Have your say...
