This is a project I was asked to make for a friend of mine. His Son was in Afghanistan on a tour of duty and had a flag flown in his honor on his base. I was really honored to do this project because my friend has many wood workers in his family but wanted someone who had “been there” to do this project. Thanks for all the advise I retrieved when I asked for help in my forum. I chose pine select for this and stained with red oak. Coated with semi gloss polyurethane.

Thanks for the comments guys. I really appreciate them. I got to deliver this today and the new owner was more then happy with them. I asked him if this was what he expected and he said he didn’t know what to expect but it exceeded his imagination. Thanks for the tips everyone gave me in designing and building this. And thanks for looking!
