A small but deceptively complex flag/shadow box. The design is basically four frames cut from the same board to match the grain, with the two inner frames holding glass.
I tried a couple different systems of hinges before I settled on an easy route with 3 sets of small hinges and a block to support the lid when opened.
The suede interior is wrapped around plywood and secured with Velcro tape in case it needs to be replaced. The coin recessed in the lid rests on a 1/16” lip and can be seen from the inside if the fabric is removed.
Built from cherry with dark cherry stain and spray lacquer.
