How They're Made

Hello and welcome to Militaryflagcase.com.  Thank you for checking out How They’re Made.  We are honored to custom make your flag memorial/s.

 


The Flag Case
     We handcraft your flag memorial case using specially selected American hardwoods.  We primarily use Oak, Cherry and Walnut, however, we will use any wood you so choose.  Your memorial case features a glass front, Semi-gloss Lacquer finish, Roman Ogee trim, removable back for easy flag insertion and a built in wall mount.  Backs of the flag cases are made from ¼” veneer core plywood.

 

The Pedestal

     Like the case these are handcrafted using specially selected American hardwoods.  We select the wood at the same time as the flag case, matching grain pattern and wood coloring as much as possible.

 

The Column

     Like the case these are handcrafted using specially selected American hardwoods.  We select the wood at the same time as the flag case, matching grain pattern and wood coloring as much as possible.
     We purchase the spindles used in making the columns as we are not equipped at this time to manufacture them in the shop.

 

Shadow Boxes

     Like the case these are handcrafted using specially selected American hardwoods.  We select the wood at the same time as the flag case, matching grain pattern and wood coloring as much as possible.

 

     Shadow boxes are specifically built to your dimensions.

 

Other

     Like all of our products we use specially selected American hardwoods.
     We use glass not Plexiglas.  Veneers are only used as backings.

 

Finish

     On standard orders we apply six (6) coats of finish.  We start by applying three (3) coats of gloss clear lacquer, sanding between each coat.  Gloss is chosen as it is provides the hardest finish for protection of the wood.  We then apply three (3) coats of Semi-gloss clear lacquer finish, again sanding between each coat, except the last coat which is hand buffed using a paste furniture polish.


Custom Orders
     We will custom build your flag memorial using wood, stain, and or finish of your choice.  Prices will vary depending on cost of materials selected.  If you don't see what you are looking for please call us at 715-835-5141, 8 AM to 5 PM CST.


All our flag memorials are built to order so please allow 4 to 6 weeks for delivery.
