I wanted to thank you for the flag case. The craftsmanship you put into this shows me you care not only about your customers, but that every piece you create is in fact a piece of art. The tight tolerances you cut your wood are amazing! The care you take in ensuring it arrived in one piece was awesome!

I want to Thank you for giving me something we will cherish in the memory of my Great Aunt!



I've got some minor adjustments to get everything centered, but I couldn't be any happier with how it is turning out. You've done an amazing job with this,

Thank you so much! I can't wait to give it to my grandparents.

Happy holidays, Rick

This is just a very short note, for now, to let you know the case just arrived. I have to say it took my breath away - it is gorgeous. You take so much care in your work and it definitely shows. The special addition of a Certificate of Authenticity made this purchase even more personal. Thank you for the little gift, too. I am surprised this is the first case out of the Bubinga wood. I was even apprehensive about the selection as wood is very much it's "own" even with a sample to suggest the color. I am pleased.

This is the first Christmas without my husband. The arrival of his Diamond Flag Case is a special gift to us both. My sincerest thanks.

Good morning Rick,

The case arrived yesterday, “THANK YOU”, it is beautiful!

Your workmanship is superb, online photos don’t do it justice. Once in hand it is obvious why the cost is higher than those “run of the mill” cases.

I will be taking it to my mother next week, “she will love it”. She has told me she already has it’s place ready on her living room mantel, where it will remain until that time in the future when it will return back my home and it’s place of honor here.

Thank you again,

Very nice creative design.

Thanks for sharing the photos with me and the rest of the world.


Dear Rick,

Thank you for the beautiful flag case! It provides a wonderful memory of my Dad. The case was perfect for finishing right out of the box and the craftsmanship was outstanding. My Dad was a woodworker and I know that he would love the case.

Thanks again. This means a lot to me.



Rick, the display case just arrived. Thank you again. It is absolutely gorgeous.

I received the display case today. IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT. It is well constructed, well finished, beautiful and, most importantly, a fitting tribute to my father.
Thank You.


We were so lucky to find you on line. the display case you crafted for us was well worth the wait. My Mom was in a very bad state after loosing her partner of 62 years. The look on her face when she saw the case was the first smile in a long time. Thank you for taking the time to supply us with a beautiful piece of art. It will live on through my sons and grandsons for a long time.

Dear Mr. Carpenter,
I have had your note to me in my pocket since receiving the flag case you made for my wife's uncle, Frank Manna, who passed away in WWII. The reason for my note is to thank you for what turned out to be an absolutely beautiful product. We were actually overwhelmed by the quality and workmanship that went into the case.
We have since placed Uncle Frank's flag in the case and it is currently on top of a piece of furniture in his sister's living room. This of course is my mother in law, and the last living heir of the Manna family, who lives with me and I cannot tell you the tremendous amount of appreciation and joy she gets from seeing the flag, his medals and a picture of him that we placed in the case displayed so beautifully. This item was a gift from us to her but, it has truly been a gift for the entire family because it honors the flag and the man with it's quality and workmanship. We have it displayed in our dining area on the Memorial day and the fourth of July holidays.
Once again my deepest gratitude for the product you produced. It helps us to remember that there was a time in our nations history where people actually took pride in their work. I'm glad you still do!
