Twin Flag Cases

These were cases I built for two flags that were flown in Afghanistan with their accompanying certificates. Both boxes are assembled with dovetails on the sides along with a thin face frame on the front to suggest a door. The tops and bottoms are capped with shop-made molding.
I didn’t know the size of the flags before starting so I had them folded by the base honor guard and built the boxes around them to fit.

Cool, I wish I had looked up flags from there and other countries I have worked and traveled to.

I love the finished case, design and craftsmanship. Well done! What did you use for the dark blue background?

Fabric on the back is vintage suede:

It’s fairly thick and looks awesome if you get it attached correctly.
