1. What makes your wooden American flags unique?
Our wooden American flags are handmade by Marine Corps veterans with PTSD, making them not only beautiful works of art, but also a meaningful way to support our veterans. Each flag is hand-carved from solid wood, ensuring a unique and rustic look.
2. What types of wood is used in your flags?
The woods that we use for our flags are Spruce and Poplar. All our wood is harvested, in an environmentally friendly way, just a few miles from Mount Rushmore in Spearfish Canyon, South Dakota. These are some of the finest trees, from sea to shining sea, in the United States of America. If getting our wood, just a stone’s throw away, from the monument to four of our nation’s greatest presidents isn’t patriotic enough?
The flags are custom built by hand by a United States Marine Corps veteran owned company. We take pride in helping many of our former military members with PTSD. Woodworking has proven to be very therapeutic for these combat heroes. Wood from near Mount Rushmore and custom flags handmade by USMC veteran owned business makes your flag pretty special.
The factory where the flags are made is in central Illinois. This is a very special place because it is near the world’s largest nesting ground for, the symbol of our nation, the Bald Eagle. When visiting the factory, at various times during the year, you can see the Bald Eagles flying overhead. If that doesn’t scream, FREEDOM we don’t know what does! Could there be more?
Well, the factory is also located in the Land of Abraham Lincoln. This part of Illinois has been recognized as a National Historic Area by the Congress of the United States. In this area is where the home of our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln lived from 1844 to 1861. The Lincoln home and neighborhood has been preserved and restored to as it last was during the life and times of President Lincoln.
The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, the famous Lincoln/Douglas debates, and the Lincoln family tomb, where President Lincoln today lays in rest, are all within a short distance from our factory!!
Mount Rushmore, US Marines, Bald Eagles, President Abraham Lincoln…our flags are very special indeed.

4. How do I care for my wooden American flag?
To keep your flag looking its best, we recommend keeping it indoors or in a covered area, away from direct sunlight or moisture. You can clean it with a soft, damp cloth as needed. If you order our World Famous Wooden American Flag - Signature style.... 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. Each star is hand carved, and it is charred prior to assembly for a timeless finish. Things of quality have no fear of time. This flag is made by hand to ensure it will last for generations. If you are looking for a treasured family heirloom, THIS IS IT.
