Hey guys I’m trying to make a flag case and struggling on how to add this name plate to the front? Any suggestion on the best way to do this? I’m using a different profile but same design

Are you attaching a name plate to the one in the picture or are making another one, I didn’t understand different profile same design?

Jwmalone sorry I guess I could have been more clear. I’m trying to make the same case with the raised portion for a name plate (same design). I’m using a different profile router bit for the molding. I am thinking the trim was all added after the name plate spot was put on, originally I was thinking it was all routed edges.

I have the main pieces of the frame cut and I had some trim cut but It wont work with the name plate spot (Name plate was an add on for my mother in law).

Matt, that’s some mighty fine work, did you have to build a sled for those miters?

ChefHDAN I actually used my Incra miter gauge set to 67.5 degrees with an auxilliary fence. Took some test cuts and patience but finally got it.

Are you considering to engrave the Name plate on the raised portion? Like it is 3 lines max with 40 word per line? If yes then I think you have already make the raised portion 5” wide and 1.4” high.
