The Exotic Wood Diamond flag cases are finished with three coats of high gloss polyurethane on the natural wood. No Staining.
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. This and all of the shadow boxes will hang on the wall

Hi! I just wanted you to know that I received the flag case today that you made for me…it is absolutely beautiful. My daddy was a wonder with woodwork and could make anything. This is something he would be so very proud of and I’m proud to put his memorial flag in it to display. The wait was worth it!
