Made this for a friend of a friend. Made of teak. Clamping the 22.5 degree angles on the bottom was a challenge. Used teak splines to reinforce the joints. Overall, this was a rewarding project. The flag was flown over the USS Constitution.

Dan, Great job on the flag box and welcome to Lumberjocks. So, How did you clamp the two 22.5 deg. joints?

Thanks for the comments, Gents. Chris, I used the cut offs from the joints and glued them to some small scraps. I then clamp the whole assembly on the corner and it provides parallel surfaces for the clamps (like the picture). The ones in the picture are from a cherry flag box I made. I will post pictures of that one in a bit. Tommy McDonald glued clamp blocks on his. I tried that on this teak box and did not like the work involved with getting them off so I made these on the next one.

Thanks for sharing Dan,

I have a project like this in my future to honor my Uncle. I hope my version is as nice as yours.
