Steve,

Check out these below. Some are not much more than some basic directions, but others are quite a bit more detailed — even include cut lists. (My son is in the Army and he’s been deployed to the Middle East 3 times — pretty scary for a parent — so I’ve done some research in case I need it. Fortunately, he’s back home now.)

Flag Case 1

Flag Case 2

Flag Case 3 (scroll down for some details)

Flag Case 4 (scroll down for photos of construction)

Flag Case 5 (click “Browse This Project File” to download a SketchUp file)

Attached are 3 different styles I have done. I would be happy to walk you through the construction process and share a few tricks I have learned over the years.
