When can I expect my Wooden American Flag Ship?
Everyone at Etherton Hardwoods LLC
is working hard to protect the safety of our team members and have increased health efforts in our offices, warehouses, and shipping departments. These proactive measures may affect all deliveries.
Do to COVID restrictions in our state (IL) our current shipping times are as follows:
All of our wooden American flags are custom crafted by hand. The Veterans who make our flags take great pride in their work because details matter. Etherton Hardwoods LLC has perhaps the most serious Quality Control Department in the wood flag industry. It is vital that each flag is perfect before it is allowed to be processed for shipment. We are not just flag makers, we are custom crafting a one of a kind work of art. Our US wooden flags are designed to last for generations and currently our work hangs in fine museums around the country and also on the outside of someone barn.
Currently, the delivery time can typically be anywhere from 2 to 12 weeks, sometimes longer. If you need your order by a certain date you can make the request when you checkout. We aim to please and are honored to have your business and support. Our wooden flags are not the kind you find at a craft show or in a hobby shop. Truly, fine art that our Veterans are proud to make for you.
For example, our two main competitors, one of them uses a plastic "stencil" and cheap white spray paint for their stars. The other competitor "glues" wood stars on the flag then places one brad nail through each star. They both use common household mass-produced wood stains. These cheap tricks do not meet the standards of Quality Control at Etherton Hardwoods LLC.
At Etherton Hardwoods, LLC, we CARVE OUR STARS...yes, it takes longer. Much longer and much harder custom work. But, you see the American flag is so special to our Vets its personal you see. Its not just a "wood flag", its "OUR FLAG" and we are damn proud of it, which is why we all chose to serve our great country in the military. Our stains are custom hand mixed colors, no two flags every look exactly the same because of this. We also "raise the grain" on our Signature Heritage Series Flags, these have become know around the world as: "World Famous Wooden American Flags".
But, we are far from done. We next have developed a proprietary woodworking process where we char only the peaks of the Raised Grain of the wood but not the valley's or the low parts. This is a process that involves rubbing the wood by hand over many hours through various work stations by our American Veterans woodworkers. You see, quality matters. Details matter. Our Flag matters! When we are completed with the Etherton Woodworking Process™ The Signature Wood Flag is then NATURALLY resistant to insects, NATURALLY water resistant, it is also now, NATURALLY resistant from fire. It is a one of a kind Work of Art.
Hands down, nobody makes Wooden American Flags, like we do at Etherton Hardwoods, LLC. They keep trying to figure out how we do this...but they never come close to getting it right.

We are so proud to have been founded by a United States Marine Corps veteran. We employ and support our veterans and a variety of vet and first responder charities locally and nationally. We don't need to brag, like some do. Our work stands on its own. Sometimes it is more of a bless to donate anonymously, we just like to be kind and we try to do the right thing.
