I had someone come to me and ask if I could make a wooden flag, with a touch color. I made a 3'x5' flag, using furring strips and a piece of pine for the rectangle piece. I torched all of the wood, to make all the grain stand out. Then painted each piece with water downed paint, leaving the grain to show through. I then hand carved all of the stars out. He was very pleased, and used it as a table top for inside of his man cave.
