Topic tags/keywords: question tip resource

I was presented with a flag at my Dads wake last week he served on the USS Baltimore in WWII it was a touching ceremony. I would like to build a case for it and display some photos below it the question I have is does the flag fit in the display with no space around it? The photos I have seen seem to shows the flag fit snugly on all 3 sides, is that a safe assumption?

You can build the display to include separate compartments for photos, medals, etc.

The flag should fit snugly and note the signle stars on top. No red should show through, only stars on blue. I’d be happy to help you through the case joinery. Max
