Grandpa’s Cabinets has been known primarily for building custom display cases for models of all varieties including ships, cars, planes, diorama’s, dolls, soccer gloves and just about anything you might think of. Well, besides these, I also build furniture and anything related to wood. One of the things I offer and custom build is the Memorial Flag Display Case. I offer either red oak or cherry solid hardwoods and I finish with any stain color a customer might desire. The flag size I make these to house is the 5 x 9 foot size that’s normally draped over the coffin of a deceased veteran. This one shown here I made for my father who was a WWII vet who served from D-Day, Omaha Beach right on through to the end of the war in Germany.
I also offer brass plaques with personalizations to suit any customer’s requirements or desires. I mounted one memorializing my dad as shown below.
Recently a customer asked for a flag case for their relative who recently passed but they wanted a different twist in the base. They wanted to be able to display a plaque on the front face of the base so it could be seen from afar. We determined they needed an area on the front of the base of 2″ to mount a plaque that was 1 1/2″ high. I designed this alteration to my usual case, which wasn’t an issue since I build everything custom to any customer’s specs, to include a base with some additional moldings. It gives the customer a place to mount their plaque and also gives the flag a more prominent display wherever they might choose to place it. Grandpa’s Cabinets offers these cases and the cost for the standard case is $89.00 plus shipping and applicable taxes and for the case with the larger base, $119.00. These are hand made, custom, and if interested, contact Ron Baluch at firstname.lastname@example.org and please visit my site, www.grandpascabinets.com for information on everything I offer.
After the customer received the case you see here, she let me know it was to display the flag that draped a relative’s coffin. She also sent me the following quote:
