Carved flag project for the 4th (2011). It is roughly 4’ x 3 1/2’

26 pieces of oak with each stripe and the blue fields dyed

I have made a few of these since then… Always looking to make more of these and have some ideas for some future ones. Will post them here!

Hope you enjoy as much as I did making them.

I really like the 3-D effect. I almost didn’t click on this as it looked so real that I thought the project was about a flag pole or something. Well done!

First of all I would like to say, Welcome to LumberJocks , a world of advise, opinions, and experiences, all shared without judgement.

Secondly, your depiction of ‘Old Glory’ is a thing of Beauty.

What must it take to mount that massive piece of Oak ?

Very nicely done. – Grandpa Len
