Custom Wood Furniture / handmade in Wichita, Kansas
I was very fortunate in knowing Dean for a brief time. As woodworkers, we shared many common interests. A couple of weeks ago Dean asked me if I would make his flag case, I was overwhelmed. I was honored that he would ask me and at the same time I felt a wonderful sense of stewardship to fulfill his request. I wanted to use the woods he loved, Walnut and Purple Heart and Splines of tiger maple. These species all blend well together. I was able to show Dean pictures of the unfinished flag case two days before he passed. He gave me a smile and thanked me. God Bless you Dean.
