I had a customer request an American Flag Coin rack for her husband as a Christmas present. I have seen a number of different versions of this design on the internet but had never built one before. As with many projects there is more to the design than meets the eye. Getting the star field and the stripes to line up with the proper spacing took some figuring but I am happy with the end result. This project is made from solid oak and used my CNC machine to cut the stars. The background is painted flat black and I used a torch to burnish the “white” stripes to give it an antique look. Overall size is approx. 18” x 30”. Fun project that I intend to make more of in the future.
