My Favorite Project

People often ask me what my favorite woodworking project is.  To date, it has to be the case I made to display the flag that lay atop my father’s casket.  He was proud of his contribution as a World War II Army veteran.  It was a distinct honor to make this case and give it to my wonderful mother.


At the time I made this case, I struggled with my nascent woodworking skills, but finally, on the fourth attempt, I finished the case.  I have been able to make a few more flag cases since that time, but none surpassed the significance of this first case.
