Here is a flag box I made for my Mother in Law. It houses the funeral flag and shells from my Father in Law’s funeral. It is made of walnut and maple. The corner splines are made from a piece of pine that I found in his work shop. The whole piece was stained with a colonial maple stain from Minwax, three coats of Watco semi-gloss lacquer and three coats of paste wax. Thanks for looking.

Very Nice, I like the idea of the placement of the brass!

Thanks, guys! Sheetzy, I tilted the blade on my TS to 22.5 and cut the miters with the piece on end. If you check out my blog, you can see how I did them. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Nice flag case. Good use of the shell casings.

I’ve made several of these and ended up making a right angle jig for the MS to hold the planks for the 22.5 cut. Keeps me fingers out of harms way. :)
