This was ordered and created for a very good friend who was in charge of an office that directly supported our troops in Afghanistan. The soldiers carried the flag while on a combat mission and later presented it to her with a certificate that tells the entire story. It shows how much they valued her group’s direct support of their daily missions.
I was asked to make a display case for this fantastic gift and gladly agreed!
We went through a few different styles, shapes and options and she really liked the one pictured.
The case is solid American Walnut and sports American Hickory splines.
Finish is a few coats of Danish oil and two coats of a semi-gloss lacquer for protection.
Dimensions are 22×15 x 3.5 inches.
I also created the certificate frame using the same walnut.
Believe it or not, the hardest part of the entire project was getting the flag arranged in the opening!
