A flag case for my Father’s flag and personal effects. I tried to tell a bit of a story of his life through the engraved glass.

Nice work and fitting tribute to a warrior. I have a few to build myself but am waiting to get through other projects so I can remodel the basement room where I plan to lay all my flags, and pictures on the wall. One wall will be strictly for Fallen Marines I served with whose Flags or pictures I have.

Thank you. Sounds like a nice memorial you will have for yourself and them.

Appreciate the kind words. Having the glass etched adds a nice touch and doesn’t necessarily cost a lot to have done. This was less than $20 to have done. Lots of places have laser engravers these days. The place that I used makes custom pool cues. If you like pool, or appreciate great workmanship check them out. They make some amazing stuff. http://www.jacobycustomcues.com/ (I have no affiliation with them whatsoever.)
