VERY POPULAR! This flag was custom built with reclaimed wood here in the great state of South Carolina.
Each star is carved the flag is charred prior to assembly for a beautiful, unique and timeless finish. This flag is made by hand to ensure it will last for generations.
To showcase the beautiful wood accents, we use an ancient woodworking technique called, Yakisugi. There are only a few people left in the world that have truly mastered this craft. My sons and I here at American Patriot Designs are amongst the few of them. This technique can only be completed by hand.
First the wood is slow charred. Then it’s carefully hand rubbed to bring out the natural color of the wood grain. The texture and colors of the wood becomes multi-dimensional and the colors fall into place on the wood as it rises up through the char.
An added benefit, this technique naturally makes the wood resistant to water and insects. There are buildings in Japan that were crafted with this technique (made only of wood) and after many hundreds of years...they still look as though they were built yesterday. If you are looking for a treasured family heirloom, THIS IS IT.
