Projects by You: Memorial Day Edition

Fellow hands-on homeowners are building some really cool projects; here's one inspired by our military in honor of the upcoming Memorial Day holiday. What do you think?


Forever Flag Display
When Handyman Club of America member Bob Phelan of Amherst, Ohio, was asked to construct a flag display in memory of a veteran, he didn’t have to think twice before accepting the challenge. “Veterans have always had a special place in my heart. They serve our country and provide us our freedom,” Bob says. He made the display out of cherry and designed it to accommodate the triangle-shape folded flag. He had a piece of glass cut to size for the front and mounted the case on brass rods. At the base, Bob added a brass nameplate provided by the veteran’s family.
