Eagle Scout Flag Box

One of the boys in our Boy Scout troop finished all his Eagle Scout requirements at the ripe old age of 14! What a fantastic accomplishment.
His mother had a flag flown over our nation’s capital the day of his Board of Review. She asked me to build a box for it to present to him at his Eagle ceremony.
The small drawer has all the Scout rank medallions inlayed in the front.
Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life, and in the center…Eagle

Cherry with a wipe on poly and waxed finish.

Thanks Keith.
It was bit challenging building it because of a shoulder injury but there was a deadline.
She would have wanted me dead if it wasn’t finished by the ceremony.

Thanks Jim…everyone in the troop is proud of him.

Ray..Thank you for serving as a camp Ranger for so many years. I’m sure you had a great influence on many boys. Our local camp sustained some pretty severe damage due to the bad wind storm this past week. The Ranger has organized a camp clean up this weekend to try and remove over a hundred fallen trees.

Bailey..Congrats to you and another big congrats to your brother. Your parents must be proud.

Wow great job. I would love to build one for me! Where did you get the medallions? I also have the flag my mom got flown over the nations capital for me getting my Eagle. Where did you get the plans? Hopefully I can build one for my 5 year old son when he gets his eagle.

Thanks,
Scott
