I enjoy making one-off flag boxes for a lot those retiring out of the Military and Civil Service. Many have spent time in both. The Command coins are a great add and I now get the plates for the base lasered on wood by a friend. I think it adds more class and it doesn’t deteriorate like so many of the commercal engravings eventually do.
The case is built for a 3 X 5 flag (no frills). Flag measure 12” on the short sides and 17 on the base.
The case base is 22” log and 5” wide. Backing is leather look hard board I find at Lowe’s and Home Depot. I like it better than the plain hardboard or the plywood paneling that doesn’t ever really match to well.
Watco oil finish.
