Two memorial flag boxes ordered by Croatian Ministry of Defence, made of walnut, finished by non glossy spray laquer. I put few proces photos….just some basic steps : Side slats prepared on router table, glueing set up, adding splines and back panel.

Nice work, Ivan. You need to talk them into giving a case with every flag and you will have a very busy business.

Cheers, JIm

Nice job. I never thought of using the spline jig for a 90 holder. I like it.

Very nice Ivan!

So do you put 2 cases in the 90 degree holder to cut splines for the acute angles (the pointy 45 degree corners)?

Here is a case I made a few years back but didn’t even know about splines back then.

Nicely done Ivan. Those should have been an easy build for you since you have made a few. Great job, and the clamping idea looks interesting.

Mikeacg, no, I just put one box in that jig when cut 45 degree corner spline groove. I just adjust saw to higher position for that cut to catch both sides

Fine flag box Ivan and really fine work on it, I also enjoy your creative, functional clamping.
