This ceremony is a means for a nation to show it's gratitude for, as well as a reminder of, the Veteran’s dedication and service to their country. Such an important piece should be memorialized in a flag display case that is not only handcrafted here in America, but also built by U.S. Military Veterans, who understand the importance of that very flag. When purchase a LOA Flag Display Case, this is exactly what you are doing. You can be proud to display your Burial Flag in an American Made - Veteran Built™ heirloom piece, that you and your loved ones will cherish for generations.
This Burial Flag Display Case is handcrafted from real Cherry hardwood. We do not use particle board with a fake wood colored veneer like you find with other, much cheaper, flag display cases. Those cases only last a few years, before being nicked and dinged, or worse... broken and chipped. We strictly use REAL hardwoods, sourced from American mills and sawyers across the country. These hardwoods will stand the test of time, ensuring that your Flag Display Case can be handed down generation to generation

American Cherry (Latin name Prunus serotina), also known as Black Cherry, is a supreme hardwood species from the U.S. hardwood forests and is unique to North America, with warm color tones and superb finishing qualities. American forest cherry trees grow principally in the northeast of the USA in mixed hardwood forests. The species is different from the many floral cherries planted throughout the world. It is a single species; the trees growing tall and often in dense stands in several U.S. states, notably Pennsylvania, New York, Virginia and West Virginia. Cherry has a relatively short rotation, taking less time to mature than other hardwoods. Much of the current resource is the result of cherry’s ability to regenerate naturally after forest fires.
The heartwood of Cherry can vary from rich red to reddish brown and darkens on exposure to light with time. The sapwood is creamy white. Although the difference between heart and sap color is marked, this can be reduced by steaming. The wood of cherry has a fine uniform, straight and unpronounced grain with a fine smooth texture. The small brown pith flecks, pin knots and gum pockets or streaks are natural characteristics of cherry, but their occurrence varies according to region.
Cherry has medium density, with good wood bending properties, medium strength and shock resistance, but low stiffness, and can be steam bent with care. Being hard and stable when dry the wood is very easy to stain and finish to an excellent surface. It is highly prized for furniture and interior joinery. As a relatively soft species, American cherry is only suitable for flooring in areas with low traffic, such as bedrooms, or in cultures where shoes are not worn in homes – as in Asia.
With a Janka Hardness Rating of 950, it is one of the "softer" hardwoods, with beautiful grain texture and qualities. It is a great choice when choosing your wood for your flag display case or shadow box.

No. We believe in the natural beauty of each type of hardwood we use. That is why we don't color stain any of our products. All our products receive a clear lacquer finish and the color of the hardwood in our product images is that of its natural color.
3. How long does delivery usually take?
We offer free ground shipping to the contiguous United States. Your order is shipped right from our shop located in Helena, Montana and can take 1-7 days depending on where in the country it is going. For orders to Hawaii/Alaska, shipping takes typically 7-10 days. APO/FPO address vary greatly. We have seen orders delivered as quick as a few days, and some that have taken a month. We will provide you with a tracking number for you to stay up to date with your orders shipping and estimated delivery.
4. What if my item arrives damaged?
We try our best to package every item well, to survive the shipment, but on rare occasions, something happens during shipment, and the item arrives damaged. We are here to help! We insure all shipments for this exact reason. If your order arrives broken contact us right away so we can quickly move to fix or replace the item. Be sure to keep all packaging, as this will be required for any exchange or replacement of the damaged product.
5. Do you offer UV glass for your items?
At this time, we unfortunately do not; but we may be looking to add this option in the future, if we can make it a cost effective option for the customer.
6. The glass has a little bit of play to it. Is this normal?
Yes! This is actually by design. Wood is an organic material that expands and contracts in different climates, during different points of the year. We allow an 1/8" tolerance for this wood movement to prevent the wood from contracting so much that it breaks the glass.
7. Where are your products manufactured?
Every item is handcrafted in our wood shop, located in the beautiful Helena, Montana.
