I'm about to build a case my self and i really like the way you set this up so that the class can be removed if necessary. I'm a little confused on how to replicate this. do you have a removable back on your flag display case? could you explain in more detail as to how and where you grooved & inserted the plywood panel. do you have any more pics? Any more info you could provide whether it be via this post or email would be greatly appreciated. Very inspiring piece. Nice Work!!
I would love to build this for my grandma. Do you have plans, pictures and/or dimensions for this case? Beautiful job!!!
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 like your method of joinery and the pedestal for mounting on a mantel or shelf. A few years back I made one for similar reasons and decided to jig up and make fifteen at the same time. Mine was much simpler than yours as it did not have the pedestal. I solved the base miter problem by making a jig that held the base and one side together for cutting the miter on my tablesaw. I wish you had posted a pic of the back side. Good idea.
