I made these for going away gifts for a couple of guys I work with. The flags were flown during our last deployment. I made two coin slots in each base, one is to hold my ship’s command and the other is to hold a coin from the squadron who flew the flag during a combat mission.

You know when your table saw is dialed in when you can mock up your joints perfectly with no tape, clamps, etc. This is one of those moments when you feel all warm inside and just enjoy looking at what you did…..ha.

Those are 22.5 degree cuts. I cut with the table saw using an Incra miter.

I really enjoy your finely made flag cases, sir. And, yes, it is a good feeling when things like miters go together.. lol
