Nice job. I happen to be making one of those right now for my mom for Christmas. Dad died just before Thanksgiving and his flag is sitting in the plastic bag the flag came in. Did you have glass cut for it, or did you use plexi?

Thanks – Sorry for your loss, Jim – I had no glare glass cut for it – from a local glass shop

That looks great I was just wondering what did you use to make the angle for the bottom. I’m trying to find a quick and easy solution because it always seems like I spend way too much time getting that angle just perfect

tpayne, the angle for the bottom is 22.5 degrees. Add all of them up and it comes to 90 degrees.

I am currently making one, and plans are on the internet, where you just use 45 degree angles. The bottom fits completely within the 2 uprights. A little simpler than trying to cut 22.5’s but not as elegant.
