How to Build a Burnt Wood American Flag #Merica

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.

I'd really love to purchase one of these from you

Ron Cook says:

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!

Chris Landry says:

What size stencil did you use for that flag?

Chris Fregia says:

This dude is a whole other level of "Dad." LOL! Great video.

Have u ever tried gel stain? Works with tape. Might not need the razor blades

Joshua Burgess says:

How long do you let the stain sit on before wiping the excess off?

Shannon Fowler says:

I love this flag, looks fantastically rustic but still clean. Great job!

Tyrone Pelfrey says:

Use clamps to put stop block instead of screws. Save your table.

RobsVette01 says:

Nice work. Use the flex shaft only for the stars next time, they will come out much more crisp and defined.

Dennis says:

That flag looks bad ass!!! Real nice job.

Helen Gomes says:

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.
