A co-worker’s father passed away and he asked me to make a case for the flag. He plans on getting a plaque made for the bottom.

Nice case, I like the stand you don’t see that feature on most flag cases.

I did one of these for my father about 2 years ago out of black walnut. The stand is what is missing from mine, it is a very nice touch. Very nice work.

looks great! what tool(s) do you use to cut the very small angles at the bottom left and right corners? just a miter saw or do you have a special jig for it?

My father passed away last week and I need to make one of these and an urn for him and mom. I’m going to use some walnut I have from a record walnut tree here in KC. It’s some great crotch pieces. I’ve been letting them dry for over a year and they were kiln dried before that. Should be good and stable by now. All my living room furniture will be made from this wood, with some padauk judiciously thrown in.

Thanks everybody!

To cut the 22.5 degree angle, I used a table saw with tenon sled on the fence.

Here are the plans if you want them (without the stand, you will have to add that, like I did):
