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.
keyhole used to hang the flag case
The frame is routed in 4 different areas. Twice on the front frame and twice on the back frame.
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.
It takes 9 separate pieces of solid 3/4” wood jointed and glued together with 24 hardwood biscuits, just to create the solid wood frame of the Heirloom flag display 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.
All of my flag cases come with a brass plate screwed to the case with my logo, the year it was handmade and my signature engraved on the plate.

This is just a very short note, for now, to let you know the case just arrived. I have to say it took my breath away - it is gorgeous. You take so much care in your work and it definitely shows. The special addition of a Certificate of Authenticity made this purchase even more personal. Thank you for the little gift, too. I am surprised this is the first case out of the Bubinga wood. I was even apprehensive about the selection as wood is very much it's "own" even with a sample to suggest the color. I am pleased.
This is the first Christmas without my husband. The arrival of his Diamond Flag Case is a special gift to us both. My sincerest thanks.
