    Flag Case

    I woke up earlier than usual this morning and since I couldn't really do anything in the shop, I decided to do a dry run of a model for a video tutorial I'm doing for a new SketchUp user.



    And then a quickie render before leaving for work.

    Thanks, gentlemen.

    Ted, that's not the greatest render. I just set it to running while I got dressed for work.

    In case there's any interest, I did do a tutorial on drawing the case.

    Thanks Rob. I suppose the Canadian flag could be folded the same way but I doubt it would have the same sort of impact. It would probably just be a red triangle.

    Roy, the base is 26 long by 6 wide. I think if I were designing one from scratch, I would get the flag first so as to measure it's folded dimensions.

    If you guys need some dimensions, Wood magazine has a free plan that can give you some direction. The dimensions in it are sized for today's burial flag. I've made 6-7 of these and they've always worked so far. Otherwise, having the flag in hand would be best.

    Thanks as always Dave. I like the fact that the case and base are combined. I often see these tilted back against the wall . . . of course I live where the ground moves so, that could be it.
