Military veterans who have served honorably in the armed forces are given a flag to carry with them during their funeral. This flag is traditionally presented to the deceased’s family as a keepsake to commemorate their life and service. These flags have sentimental value for those of us who have lost a loved one who served. We believe that displaying them in a dedicated display case is the best option.
A 5′ x 9’6″ burial flag measures approximately 11″ tall and 22″ across the base when folded into the classic triangular shape. In practice, some of the flag’s length and width are lost in the folds, so a good-fitting flag case would typically measure 21.5″ x 10.75″. If you have the flag you want to display on hand, make a mock-up to make sure everything fits properly when it’s finished. Outside dimensions of pieces in 3/4″ thick material are as follows: one piece 4″ x 25-1/8″ and two pieces 4″ x 17-3/4″. The 4″ width will allow me to create a decorative profile on the front of the display, as well as space for the glass and backer board.

About: I miss the days when Popular Mechanics had a plethora of DIY projects for making and repairing just about anything. I’ve been having a lot of fun posting stuff I’ve learned and done since I got my first to…
When a former member of the armed forces of the United States of America dies, a military honor guard presents the family with a folded American flag at the graveside committal service. A wooden three-cornered flag case with a glass front is popularly purchased or made. A cheap flag case can be found for as little as $20 US, but a good solid wood case can cost well over $100 US.
When my wife’s father died a few years ago, I decided to make a case for the flag that draped the coffin.
During World War II, he served in the United States Army in the Philippines.
The folded flag must first be measured. I’m making a paper pattern out of a piece of newspaper. The flag is placed with 3/4 inch of space around it to accommodate the wood that will be used to build the case. The flag weighs 5 feet by 9 1/2 feet when unfurled. Two sides are 17 5/8 inches folded. The third side measures 25 5/16 inches in length. The folded flag has a thickness of 3 1/4 inches. Look at the second photograph. Depending on how tightly the flag is folded, your measurements may vary. Add a suggestion Comment/Ask a QuestionDownload Step 2: Start truing the wood

I’ve been making flag cases for the families and departments of our police officers killed in the line of duty by a felon since July of 2020. It’s turned out to be quite a task. The majority of the time, news of a slain police officer does not make national headlines outside of the area where it happened. So, I’m going to do some homework…
