So I was in a bind….a blank space in my man room….what to do, what to do…..

So I’ve been asking for years for my wife to let me put a nice flag pole in the front yard…..the most common response is “that’s not going to happen”. So as an alternative I figured I would bring Old Glory indoors.

This is the second one of these I’ve made. The flag pole is simple PVC pipe…that’s about the extent of my plumbing capabilities or desires The cabinet was built a few years ago that seemed to just get moved around with no real home. Well, it now has a home. All was good as soon as I got passed the initial question of “now why did you drill a hole in the top of that”. The cabinet is oak, stained with gold oak stain. The hardware came from Meisel Hardware. The pulleys and other hardware for the flag pole came from Lowes.

Nice work. I see that the placard is CVW 17. I was attached to USS SARATOGA in 1982-5 with CVW 17 embarked. Small world.

Nice accoutrement for your man cave! I guess all you need now is a huge-screen TV, and a rock’n surround sound system!

Charles, we sailed on Vinson during the deployment I was with CVW-17. It is truly a small Navy for sure.

Dean……already have the big screen….the sound system would be nice :)

Great work! And I’m a great fan of those flags, too! I’m shipping out in 75 days to start my Nuke Power pipeline. Why won’t your wife allow a flagpole in the front yard? It was tough, but I finally convinced my parents last year to put one up at their new house. I did all the work, and the kit from Lowes is just over $100, plus a few bags of concrete and some pavers. I like your indoor version though! Bravo-Zulu.

Stripper pole would be better.
But the flag pole is nice.
Can’t go wrong with the Stars and Stripes.
