It takes 15 separate pieces of solid 3/4” wood jointed and glued together with 28 hardwood biscuits, just to create the solid wood frame of the Diamond flag case.
The case is routed in four separate locations on the case which includes recessing the back frame for the back access panel to be flush with the back frame.
My design allows you to replace the glass front if it is accidentally broken, most cases don’t.
I route in a keyhole and screws are used on the back so the Diamond flag case will hang flat against the wall. I don’t use cheap metal brackets used to hold your flag case on the wall.
I use veneered plywood for the back of the case. Screws are countersunk into the back. I don’t use cheap protruding plastic clips to fasten the back to the frame.
Every Flag Case includes an Engraved Brass Plate or two. 3 lines with 26 letters maximum on each line.

Zebrawood is an exotic wood native to the Western African countries of Cameroon and Gabon. It is a hard wood, with a medium to coarse texture. The Zebra-like appearance is due to the light colored sapwood in contrast with the dark colored grain.
