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.
