    What's the most patriotic project you have made?
    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.

    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.

    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:

    Like Tony, Barry and others, I've made two flag display cases for widows of deceased vets.

    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.

    this was made years ago. The torch is to let all our service members find there way back home from the living hell of the wars. The red base to me is for all the soldiers blood that has been spilled through out the centuries.
