I had been planning this for about a year or so and finally got around to getting it done. Just in time for the forth. I wish I would have had it done for Memorial Day. But just didn't happen.
I bought all the brass and then a friend of mine made the mounting spindle and the rings. I made the eye hooks from scratch and of course purchased the clasps and the mount. I polished all the brass my self. The eagle is just brass coated aluminum from ebay. Couldn't find a good solid brass one for a reasonable price.
The shaft is actually a poplar closet rod stained and with 4 coats of varnish.
I did this in remembrance of every service members who ever served to fight for our freedoms!!
It's actually quite heavy and I don't think the mounting is going to make it. I'm going to get a brass plate that I can bolt the mount to and then spread the load with 4 screws in the corners of the plate.
May God bless America!!!
