From time to time I enjoy doing a patriotic piece because I was in the military for 8 years and my son-in-law continues to serve. I would like to ask anyone looking at this to take a moment to remember all the men and women and their families who have given the ultimate sacrifice for all countries.

This piece is 20 inches long and 16 tall. It was made with cocabola, blood wood, brazilian rosewood, blue pine, ebony, aspen, lignum, curly maple, palm, cortez, spalted tamerin, wenge, osage, grinadillio. It was finished in satin.

Kory,

You never fail to impress. Patience and a great eye. Was in during Viet Nam for 4 years.

Just purchased an old Delta 18 inch type 1 scroll saw. Needs some TLC, and upgrades if available. Checking in to Intarsia.

Seeing this right after viewing the following video can only bring out the true sentiment that we should all feel for our troops of today and yesteryear!

Since I live in San Jose I saw this on TV and the interview with Joe Bell heartwarming as he was totally surprised!
