American Flag – Wood

In our wood shop we are making flags. The first one we have made is the American Flag seen here. We made the flag 20” tall and 34” wide out of 1 by 1 1/2” wood strips. We then connected them with biscuits and glue. The red strip is done with redwood stain. The trickiest part was painting the white stars onto the blue section in the right pattern and size so it looks like the actual flag. Finally, we sealed it with Polyurethane so you can hang it outside as well as inside. It turned out well and we have sold our first flag (also our first item) made in our shop. Yay!!!
