This is a burial flag case for a co-workers father. Korea/Vietnam veteran and his ashes rest in the base. Curly Cherry with Tung Oil and wax finish.
I hope I win! It's been a long time since I powered through the Bombe Secretary videos!
I groved the base and top of the case to allow a plywood panel be inserted before attaching to base with 4 screws. this allows the top to be removed allwoing the glass to be replaced should that be required. It also keeps the back clean and free of fasteners.
I have made a dozed or so flag cases and have always put them on a small flat base to avoid the long mitre, then I can attach with screws allowing the removal if needed. This time I just added the box below.
I would love to learn how to build those . . . . if only I had all the time in the world.
