A few of the flags I have made lately. They fly out of the shop as soon as the glue drys. Actually I give most of them away. All of these have 9MM casings for the stars. The picture of the blue field with stars and casings is a bit of a chore, but I like it. Think I will keep that one. Since I am in Alabama, guess I will make a few Confederate flags to expand the rememberance of where we have been, so we can see where we are going. Doug

Nice looking flag’s Doug and great reuse of those empty casings. I would love to see your version of a Confederate flag;after all it’s part of our American history.

Nice flags Doug. You must do a lot of shooting to have a supply of casings like that

These are really cool. I have seen something similar once out of a pallet. Always thought it would be good idea to make one. On the list. A nice touch with the casings.

Well done!

Do the casings still smell like gunpowder? That is how the Flag arrived in the first place!

Great job Doug. The shell casings put this project over the top. This would look good hanging in our American Legion Post.

Doug, these are very attractive and I like the idea of using the 9mm spent casings in place of the stars. That’s a very creative idea.
