Default Flag Display Case

A little while back, my son-in-laws grandfather passed. Just a real nice guy from all accounts. I had meet the fellow a few times and shared a couple of friendly conversations with him during the holidays and the like, but that was the extent of my getting to know him.
From the pictures that were on display at the wake, it was clear that he and his family took a great deal of pride in his military service in the Marine Corps. Some how or another, the subject of the burial flag came up. One of his daughters pulled me to the side and said she had heard that I do some wood working and would I be interested in doing a display case for the flag.
I told her I'd be happy to

Since my grandson was just a lil fellow, I've had him in the shop. Most of the time doing what lil kids do best...
The last few years though, slowly been kinda showing him the ropes so to speak. We have completed quite a few projects together. When doing something like this flag display case, I like to get everything ready to go, do a dry fit and then take everything apart. Then Luke (grandson) comes and we put it together for a final fit and finish. On this one, he helped with the staining, getting the medals and medal frames in place, putting in the lexan and the back. It seems to give a great feeling of accomplishment and it just makes me smile!

btw: I bought that little black and decker driver for Luke, Its beginning to look like I might have to buy him another one. The darn thing is proving itself to be very, very handy...

That is superb, Bill.

There have been some great flag cases shown on the forum.

Thank you sir.... I made room for the round medals with a 2 1/2" forster bit. The big bit came in handy for this project. Usually just use it for clock inserts. I would have documented the build had I known it was going to turn out as it did...as far as the shop goes, its little more than a basement shop. fairly well equiped with alot of middle of the road kinda tools and a few top shelfers. size wise its somewhere around 20'x 30'..give or take. takes up about a quarter of my basement.
