Recently I had the honor of building a memorial flag case for my grandfather’s flag. Grampy served in the U.S. Navy in the 1950’s and I believe he served in the Korean war.
I built a fairly simple design. My thought there was I did not want to distract from the flag itself too much. Joints were all cut on the table saw with a tenon jig. I did not have a band clamp, but a couple of the Thule straps for my kayaks worked fine. The wood is solid mahogany. The finish is Watco Danish Oil – Natural with some polished bees wax on top. We may add a small bronze name tag later on.
