I built this Mahogany Military Saber Display Case for a friend of mine who has a son who is an officer in the Air Force and an honor graduate from Norwich University. The piece is made from both quarter-sawn and plain-sawn mahogany and was finished with Waterlox Original. TONS of pictures of the building process can be found on my website at

Tank you!

I love swords. I have a small collection of swords I use for tai chi, sport fencing and just lookin at. I also have an Austrian bayonet I found in a grass field while surveying (another early job) from the First World War. I suppose this is what I should do with them. Very nice presentation, very inspirational. On my favs list.
