Flag box is done and ready for shipping to my mom for Christmas. My dad’s memorial flag arrived and after a few attempts we got it folded and fit into the box.
Hope she likes it!
Final details on the flag box include fitting the back frame to hold everything in place and making the French cleat for hanging. I probably don’t need a French cleat, but using it will help prevent the box getting unintentionally knocked off the wall.
When shooting mitres, I use two different mitre shooting boards and I haven’t talked about the Evenfall picture shooting board that I use and comes in particularly handy when I need angles that are different from 45. Silly me build my flag box not at a perfect 45 degree angle. But have no fear, the Evenfall picture shooting board is adjustable.
I picked up the glass for my flag box (went to the local u-frame-it store), fit it into the box and cleaned up the face frame. Then I ran into a serious work impediment when I went to cut the backer board …
It’s in the high 20’s and apparently outside pussy cat has decided inside is a good place to be.
