I have had a lot of thought this weekend on those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our county & I am very grateful. Thanks also to all veterans and active duty.

I have been trying to get to this project for quite a while. I recently got access to an small stash of very old white pine harvested in NE Michigan ~1880. I used trans tint dye to get the color I was comfortable with but still allow the grain to show through. The stripes were dyed individually and then assembled. I used my CNC to carve the stars-they are just over 1/4” outside radius. I used 3/4” tall stripes, so the overall dimension is ~9 3/4” by 18 1/2”. I left the pine natural instead of experimenting with white and painting all 50 stars.

I was able to stack the stripes (for the most part) so one can see the grain pattern carry through multiple boards.

Thanks for looking.
