Here’s the first Flag Box I ever built. A couple of mistakes along the way, but hopefully the next one will be better. I learned a few things at least. Thanks go to Rod for both design considerations as well as donations of the plexiglass and the backing. I do like that backing. I’ll be ordering some of that(through Lowes, as I recall). We’ll see how the pricing on that is. Thanks Rod, a great friend and buddy.
The top corner is glued & pin-nailed. The triangle is screwed to the base from underneath with 4 screws. And the recipient has room on the extended front of the base to add a plaque of their own choosing.
And just for fun, kudos to the first person that can correctly identify the wood used in the main construction of this box. Obviously Rod, you are prohibited from commenting on this.
