That is beautiful work, and as a retired Navy man myself, I love it. But, the flag not folded properly, or if it is, it’s not displayed properly.

Only rule for displaying a flag is upright and if it’s been “cased” or folded, its not supposed to be unfolded. If he builds his the way I do then the flag is never folded to begin with, just put in the recess and the rest shoved in for aesthetic purposes only. Love your boxes fellow shadowbox maker.
