Sword Display Case

A wooden case was prepared for a ceremonial military sword and it's scabbard. Sipo wood, a mahogany-like wood, was used, with a clear acrylic lacquer finish. The construction allows the case to sit on the table, as seen, or there are mounting holes on the back to hang the case on the wall. No lock is required like a gun case because, as a ceremonial sword, the edge is not sharp! (I didn't know that.)

The case will be designed for your item, including size and position of the custom wooden hooks inside the case. This unit had inside dimensions of 39 inches long, 10 inches high, and 3¾ inches deep. The frame for the glass is 1¼ inches wide (so more than half of it will be over the sides of the case). The front can have a "piano" hinge which adds stability to the rather narrow frame, or can have more decorative brass hinges.

$350 each
in most types of wood, ready for your glass installation

Memorial Flag Box

This flag box is made from walnut, and is designed to hold a casket flag used in military funerals. The flag was folded during the funeral, tighter than most flags, so there is a little extra space around the sides of the flag. A box like this can be made from your choice of wood, sized to fit your flag, or in the "standard" size as shown.

Memory Boxes

Walnut Memory Box

A memory box is the modern equivalent of a scrap book or baby book. Sized to hold a sheet of paper, it is a place to collect souveniers, whether the lifetime record of a baby from the hospital record on, or whether for a wedding or other special collection.

$150 each


This cigar humidor is made from Bubinga, and is lined with the requisite Spanish Cedar. This one has small drawers on the bottom for smoking accessories - trimming tools and lighters.
