The keyhole is also routed into the frame which is used to hang the flag case
Your flag case will lay flat against the wall when hung because the back is screwed in place and a keyhole is routed into the frame. I don’t use plastic clips to hold the back on or outward protruding hangers.
Medallion and Brass Plate
The frame is routed in 4 different areas. Twice on the front frame and twice on the back frame.
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 panel.
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 use veneered plywood for the back of the case.
Diamond flag cases are finished with three coats of high gloss polyurethane on the natural wood. No Staining.
A plate comes with every flag case I create that includes my Logo, Signature and Year your case was handcrafted.
The plate is attached to the bottom of the case and is not seen when the case is displayed.
Every Flag Case includes an Engraved Brass Plate or two. 3 lines with 26 letters maximum on each line.
You enter the plate information at check out.
Military medallions are also included with the “Diamond” and “Heirloom” flag display cases.
With the “Diamond” flag case you choose the memorabilia area felt color.
Every Flag Case includes a plate with the year it was made and my signature. The plate is attached at the bottom out of sight.
All of the Diamond Flag Cases will hand on the wall.
