Triangle Troubles

Hi all..I am new to this site & am currently being challenged by a simple problem..I am making a flag display case for a friend who returned from Afghanistan & I am stuck in a corner..I have cut 45 degree angles at the top of the triangle & cannot figure out what angles to cut on the lower corners..my method was to divide the 90 degee top angle in half thereby cutting the joining pieces at 45 degrees..then to cut the remaing (2) 45 degree angles in half or 22.5 degrees each..those of you following along know this will not work..help..what angle should I use on both bottom corners??

360 degrees minus your 90 degrees equals 270 degrees remaining. Divide this by 4 ( 2 cuts per corner) each cut is 67 1/2 degrees. Do you know how to cut this angle if your using a miter box.

that's assuming you want to miter those corners! Hope this helps.
