My father was a cook in the US Navy C-Bees during WW2 in the Pacific, and these were his carving knives, fork and sharpening steel that he brought home with him. When dad passed away my brother got them and he ask me to make a display case for them. It is made of 1/4 sawn red oak. The door pull is made from a piece of ebony dad brought back from the islands. I have been saving it for something special and felt this would be a good use for a piece of it, still have a piece 4” x 6” x 2” left, I will decide what to do with it later, in the meantime it makes a great paper weight. The first four pictures are unfinished, my brother said he wanted to finish it so I gave it to him unfinished. The last picture is after he finished it and hung it on his wall. I apologize for the quality of the pictures,perhaps I should take a photography class !!!
