Perfect for Veterans Day, or any other day, this episode of Rough Cut features the building of a Flag Box, perfect for housing the American flag. As a special feature in this episode, Tommy welcomes five retired members of the military into the shop to help him fold the flag for the box. And to add another dimension, the box itself features splines made from live oak from the USS Constitution. Throughout the episode, Tommy provides detailed instructions, highlighting the techniques for achieving successful splined miter joints. Tommy also goes on location to the USS Constitution to speak with naval historian Margherita Desy, and is paid an in-studio visit by fellow woodworker Al D'Attanasio.
