Hey Lumberjocks, I bought a new flag the other day because this flag was worn out on the ends. My wife asked me what i was going to do with it. I just made a mantle and i thought a flag case would look nice on my mantle. So i took out some of my free pine that i had laying around and made one. I used plexiglass for the glass and i put a 1/4 inch plywood on the back. For the finish, i used a spray lacquer.
Thanks for looking.

Monty
