Sorry about the picture orientation, still having issues in this department. I made our Ensign out of solid wood (birch 2×4)’s. This was a fun and very messy build. DUST WAS EVERYWHERE! I love this piece and couldn’t wait to put it in my office.

Very nice. What did you use to do the bulk of the carving?

Turn your phone sideways or rotate the pics. Doesn’t matter how much. Just a hair will work.

That is fantastic.
