My grandfather passed away in July. He served in the US Army during WWII and my grandmother was presented with his flag. I asked that I might be able to make her the case for the flag. This is made from cherry and maple and was planed down to 1/2”. I didn’t feel comfortable with the 22.5 angle, so I wanted to stick with 45 degrees. So I did a dovetail joint with the router and 45 degree miters on the bottom piece. Natural Danish Oil with furniture wax to finish. The glass is held in with glazing points.
