On this episode I build a DIY rustic burnt wood American flag. This is a step by step video on how to build a wood American flag. It was a pretty straight forward build. Took me a day and a half to build (and that was only because I had to let the stain dry!).
You only need 3 8 ft. 1X8s and a couple of furring strips.

got any ideas on a Rebel Flag ?
10 seconds in…, thumbs up!
I'd really love to purchase one of these from you
You burned in after staining and assembly. Is there a drawback or disadvantage to burning, staining and then assembly? Or just personal preference? Great job, great video!
What size stencil did you use for that flag?
This dude is a whole other level of "Dad." LOL! Great video.
I make these often but for some reason YouTube suggested I watch this. This was awesome!! Now jumped on board your channel
Amazing flag dad. So glad I found this channel!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 TRUMP 2020
Awesome build bud
Have u ever tried gel stain? Works with tape. Might not need the razor blades
How long do you let the stain sit on before wiping the excess off?
I love this flag, looks fantastically rustic but still clean. Great job!
Use clamps to put stop block instead of screws. Save your table.
Nice work. Use the flex shaft only for the stars next time, they will come out much more crisp and defined.
That flag looks bad ass!!! Real nice job.
Son you gotta panty on your head😜
Thank you so much for including the calculator. I don't own a saw so I need to measure everything out for big box store to cut lol. Guess I should invest in at least a circular saw.
Awesome video! Love your sense of humor and final product always comes out amazing! Keep up the good work!
really nice build I like the idea.
