I knocked it over and some ended up on the flooring.... If you look just right you can see a slight sheen....

So that would be a "mat" finish :D.

That's kind of become my back drop to photograph small projects.:)

I totally agree with all of the above Chet. Great craftsmanship. 

I even borrowed your base idea for a little project I’m building. Thanks

Unfortunately I now have a flag display on my project list. I had wondered about using box joints and remembered this thread. I may end up doing miters and splines though. I'll probably borrow your base design, it looks really nice!

Thanks. It looks like the project will be pushed back until this summer or fall. My grandfather died a week or so before Christmas, and just a few days before his 100th birthday. He was a pilot in WW2 and Korea, flying 52 combat missions in bombers. 
My dad wants to make the flag display with me, so it will be done after I move this summer, when we will be closer.
