With our Signature Heritage Flag we use a proprietary woodworking technique, this allows us to Char the Peaks of the Grain but not the Low Parts or the Valley of the Grain. We call this the, Etherton Woodworking Process™. This is our top of the line wood flag. First the wood is slow charred. Then it’s carefully hand rubbed to bring out the natural color of the wood grain. Next, we meticulously Raise the Grain (this is when the magic happens). The texture of the wood becomes multi-dimensional and the colors fall into place on the wood as it Rises Up through the Char. At the completion of the Etherton Woodworking Process™ the wood is also naturally RESISTANT to Water and Insects. This is achieved without ANY chemicals at all.
The Etherton Woodworking Process ™ is an ancient technique that was lost to the Ages, until the Master-craftsmen at Etherton Hardwoods™ discovered it and have now brought it back to life. There are ancient buildings throughout the world that used this technique and they are now many hundreds of years old….yet they still look as though they were built yesterday.
There are no other wooden flag company's in the world that knows how to do this process, but Etherton Hardwoods™. There are NO OTHER Wooden American Flags that are anything like what we do. Hands down, the Rustic Wood Flag that you purchase from Etherton Hardwoods™ is the finest Wood Flag in the World, period! This is American Flag Artwork that you will be proud to display as the centerpiece of your Home Decor. Proudly Made in the USA by the Great American Worker.
