Third of three Flag boxs for retiring Marines out of the Ammo Branch.
Three layers of birch ply cut with a circle jig.
Cut rabbet on front anti hold acrylic.
Rabbet in back for inset with cloth, flag, and awards mounted.
Backing, acrylic and retention ring all cut with a router circle jig, too.
Flame is MDF cut to shape, routed, and regluded together.
Multi coats of spray paint.
I’ll try a red, orange, yellow flame on the next one.

Very cool bro. That’s a thing of beauty, and honor. You might say “That’s Da Bomb!!!”.

IYAAYAS!! Very cool man, nicely done. I didn’t know Marines used the same AMMO logo we used in the AF.
