Retirement plaque, US Flag

I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to make a retirement gift for a friend who's been with the Sheriff's department for 30 years. One of the ladies in his department saw some of my work and sent some suggestions to see if I could get something ready in time (I had about two weeks so that wasn't a problem). We decided on a US Flag with the thin blue line. She picked it up yesterday and they presented it to him this morning; I understand he was thrilled with it so that text was a good way to start the day for me!

The flag is 12" x 22" and cut out of 1/2" BB which achieved the look they liked.
