Being former military and having buried my Dad not long ago I wanted to have a case to display his flag.

These are the two jigs I made to cut the 22.5d angle

Great looking Case. Where did you get your plans? I really like the base.

I just Googled flag display cases, after seeing how it was built I made up my own base and how I wanted the base to look. You can do case using all 45d corners, I prefer the single 45 at the top and two 22.5d cuts at the bottom corners, just looks better that way, in my opinion. I will say the 22.5d is much harder to do.

Very nice looking case. Great jigs.

We are losing a lot of Heros. I lost my Dad Dec 2009. He had finaly given me his awards and medals to put in a display box and I was honored to present it to him about a year before he passed. Last week, the last kown surviving WW I US Soldier died at age 110. Many of our WWII vets are quickly departing. Viet Vets are starting to pass now, too. Thank you for honoring him as a Military member and a Patriot. And Thank You for your servic as a Partriot.

When you honor, one you honor all.

I have just learned of a way to cut the 22.5d corners using a tenoning jig. I would like to post pictures on my blog but can’t figure out how to use it, the blog that is. Maybe some one could help out here.
