How to build this American Flag – Easy DIY Project

How to build this American Flag – Easy DIY Project

Follow me in this how to video as I make this American flag using 2×4’s and some scrap plywood – This is a project you can complete in an afternoon.

I made a resolution this year, to give back to a community that has given much to me. Three years ago I had just moved back to the States and bought a house. I wanted to put up some crown molding, but had no idea on how to do it. I googled it, and stumbled into an online community within YouTube that taught me that and so much more. I was subscribing to dozens of channels and drinking up as much knowledge as I could. I had been bitten by the woodworking bug.

Fast-forward to the present, and I feel it is time to add my own contribution to this community. I’ve always been fascinated with creating art, and have now found a medium to express that desire. This piece is one that I have refined over the past two years. The early prototypes are gathering dust in my shop, some have been sold and are hanging in other peoples houses, even modified one to the flag of city of Chicago as a wedding gift.

Here is my entry to the collective knowledge of the internets.
