Flag display boxes
for our veterans

The Build
We had a good turnout for the flag box build. If you were one of the builders, a big thank you for your help. We made approximately 60 boxes at the event. We will be scheduling another build in the future to finish the "100 boxes" that we had figured on. We'll be sending an email to alert you to the time and place. Meanwhile here are some pictures of our event. (scroll down)

Ok, we got it figured out...

Getting the dimples in place...

Of course there was a lot of sanding...

The two different styles...

A pile of 'em waiting for the finishing...

And of course, the lunch break.
