American Flag Themed Patriotic Poker Box

I made this poker box about a year ago.  Serving in the Army, the American Flag holds a very special place in my heart.  This design is my interpretation of the American Flag. my version of the stars and stripes

The mahogany, ash, and walnut represent the red, white and blue of our flag.  The stars and stripes run through the entire box and really carry the theme

this poker box can hold up to 500 chips and 2 decks of cards

throughout.

There is plenty of room for 500 poker chips and two decks of cards... And finished to protect the box from greasy potato chip hands or smudges of beer :)
