For my dad.
~Walnut and Cherry~ I know he likes this.
Finished with tung oil with a wax finish.
Made an access panel on the bottom.

Dad passed away this past July. It was very unexpected and he is missed tremendously.
This is for him.

My sympathy to you for your loss. Beautuful flag case. I like the design. Isn’t it an honor to make these for vets?

I’m sorry for your loss, my father just passed away also. I will be making one of these for him, he was a Korean war vet.

The unexpected part makes it so much harder, I know. Beautiful job!
