Flag Case Woodworking Plan

Item #
64% of 100

Designed for a 5' x 9-1/2' American flag, this case preserves the carefully folded symbol of our nation and honors the memory of a loved one. You can set this case on a tabletop or shelf, or hang it on a wall courtesy of a clever pair of bevel-edge cleats.

Making a flag case usually requires cutting long, narrow 22-1/2° miters where the sides meet the base. By fitting the base between the sides, our design eliminates these difficult cuts, leaving you with easy 45° miters all around.

Woodworking Experience:
My Flag Case
This is my first case. Last? I liked the detailed description and photos. Most helpful and encouraging.
Pg.2 Materials: s/b 1/4" hardboard/Masonite
Pg.2 Materials: 3/4" brass screws (12) are easier to find/buy and are sufficient.
My biggest challenge was to hold angles and dimensions while getting accurate/tight, mitered corners.
Expensive glass, $35

I thought the plan was more complicated than it needed to be. And the instructions could have been a bit clearer.cleaner

I guess you get what you pay for...I paid for a piece of paper
I guess I misunderstood what I ordered. I thought it came with the materials to assemble it. Nope just some directions on how to make it. Now I’m wondering if it’s even worth it to send it back. ???????

I am preparing a proposal for work to dispose of the numerous flags we use at work (government building). I decided to donate this first one to see if idea is welcomed. I want to do a try out to see if our Friends group (non profit) can benefit from the sales and collect funding for activities. If approved I will be contacting you for other shipping prices or arrangements because at this time it is very expensive and we will probably buy several. Thank you

Does this case have glass to protect the flag?
C L on Apr 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you would need to cut a piece of glass to fit the front. The glass molding is glued to the side pieces before cutting the 22 1/2 degree angle. I went around that by using a saw kurf for the glass, sealing the interior side of the side pieces before assembly then assembled the case w/the glass installed. Was able to do it this way cuz I didn't stain the wood just sealed the cherry w/polyurethane, also milled the thickness to 1/2". Made three at once, was a satisfying project for members of our Greatest Generation.
Are there instructions on adding glass?
Roberta M on Dec 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The back panel is to be made out of hardboard. Use it as a template for the glass panel it is the same size. You might also trying using a piece of finished quarter inch plywood for the back piece which can stain nicely in cherry.
Our flag measures 16x16x23 will this fit ?
Pat M on Nov 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello Pat, my finished inside measurements are: 15.3/8 X 15.3/8 X 22". It displays a standard 3' X 9', military folded burial flag. At first, I thought the case may not be large enough and the face of the folded flag would show creases thru the glass front. After some adjusting, turned out just fine. Proud of the case and what it displays. Good luck
What tools are needed for this project?
kayakerich on May 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I used primarily a table saw, band clamps, and I fashioned a wider base to attach the case to, I used a router with a roman ogee on the base edge
