I had the chair strategically positioned at the head of the conference room table. As the Commodore went around the room to shake our hands, he actually pushed the chair aside a bit, not noticing it. I asked him if he wanted to take a seat, and that’s when he saw it…he was really overwhelmed and surprised – he said the chair was beautiful, perfect, and something he had always wanted! – Happy overseas DDG skipper

All I can say is WOW…it looks amazing! I’m so happy this worked out and I know my CO will be happy to receive this gift during his change of command. I’ll definitely be sure to use your business again if I have another project. Thank you again!

The chair arrived today and I cannot properly describe what a wonderful surprise it was for me! It was promptly placed in front of the fireplace in the den–certainly a place of honor in our house and a perfect location as a conversation piece. This is the best news of all–Becky loves it as much as I do!

My sincere thanks to you and the rest of the superstars in the Helicopter Flag Community for this wonderful and thoughtful gift. My only hope is that all of you can visit us some day and enjoy a cold, refreshing adult beverage while sitting in MY chair! Again, thanks to all of you!

– Happy sea chest customer

Mike– I wanted to drop a note and let you know how great the chest turned out.   It exceeded my expectations.  Thanks for taking the time to send the tray separately, the shadow box turned out great and makes the chest that much nicer.  The flag triangle was perfect.  Attached are some pics of the final product.  From design through delivery I couldn’t be happier with the service.

The chest is fantastic; I cannot thank you enough for working with me to make a chest that holds all of the submarine caches I have collected.

– Happy Coast Guard sea chest customer

Mike: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. This was more than I had ever imagined it would be. The photos on the web page don’t do your finished product justice. I am so incredibly happy with this thing I can’t find the right words to express how much it means to me to have this in my hands. Your attention to detail and focus on meeting my wants and needs went far beyond anything I ever expected. I can’t be happier with it. I now have a treasure chest in which to fill with the memories of a very special father and Sailor in my life known to me as Dad. You are the man. Rest assured that when Chief … gets closer to her retirement there will be another one being ordered for her and one for me as well when my retirement time arrives in a few short years. In the meant time if you ever need a reference please feel free to send them my way.

My best to you and yours.

God Bless.

Got the embroidered emblem, exceeds expectations! Thank you.

Greetings from Sunny San Diego, Mike!

Sorry I had not yet responded — the chests are in place and I feel like they have been a part of the family for years already!

Absolutely beautiful work — I am so glad I got both a large and a small Sea Chest.  The large chest will be the perfect resting place for my USN uniforms, and the photo I had carved in the front of the chest is spectacular.  Admiral Nimitz himself would be proud to see his namesake ship immortalized in such a way.  The small Sea Chest is perfect for storing ribbons and medals below, and I use the upper storage area now daily.  I am sure they are both destined to become prized family heirlooms.

The shipping was top notch!  Wooden crates and Styrofoam made sure the journey was smooth sailing, and both pieces arrived in excellent condition.

Happy to cash your check for a refund on shipping fees, but after delivery of these fine pieces of art, I feel like I owe you much more than the price you charged.

Thanks again for taking care of my order — you run a first rate business and I will happily recommend you to all my soon to retire friends.

Take care Mike!
– Extremely happy Navy captain

Love it,………………great workmanship.  I am very pleased… !!
