Submitted by my 8 yr old grandson.

Sorry to say that I have never been inspired to make anything patriotic. Only thing I have done is install a flag pole on my house and i fly the flag all year long. I'm the only one in my court that does.

I've built a couple of flag boxes for some veterans, that's about it for me.

Flag case for my dad's honor flag. Also, working on one for my wife's dad's flag which was stuck away in a closet somewhere for 40 years til her brother dug it out and asked me to make a case like the one I did for my dad.

Not so much patriotic, made an urn for a close Veteran friend shaped like a bullet— that ‘s what he wanted— sorry, didn’t save a pic.
Have contributed wood fir others making flag boxes.

I have made some patriotic pens for the girls at the county V.A. office who have helped me a lot dealing with the V.A.

I worked in the Luke AFB wood hobby shop for 10 years, it was attached to the frame and trophy shop, so I was constantly tasked to make custom stuff for the airmen. Cases for all sorts of memeobilia, hundreds of flag cases and shadow boxes, 5 foot long plaques with 20mm gun barrels from F-16s was a very popular order. I stopped working there a couple of years ago and work out of my own shop now, but still have a contract with them for flag boxes and retirement shadow boxes that sell in their gift shop. Would post some pics, but my desk top computer is down.... It's kinda cool to think that several thousand servicemen and women have a little piece of my work in their home or office. Patriotism + capitalism = $$:cool:

Since I just recently got into woodworking, I haven’t made anything patriotic unfortunately. I hope too in the future! But haven’t gotten there yet.
