Signature Series is our top of the line flags. For these flags we use an ancient woodworking technique called, Yakisugi, sometimes referred to as, Shou Sugi Ban. There are only a few people left in the world that have mastered this craft, Etherton Hardwoods™ is one of them. This technique can only be completed by hand. 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. This Asian woodworking technique also naturally makes the wood resistant to water and insects. There are buildings in Japan that were crafted with this technique (made only of wood) and after many hundreds of years...they still look as though they were built yesterday. If you are looking for a treasured family heirloom, THIS IS IT.
The compartments come with 2.25" thick customizable layered kaizen foam that you will cut to personalize your case with the items you want to conceal. 🇺🇸👊🏻
Kaizen Foam is a closed cell foam that doesn’t absorb moisture like most other types of foam. This makes it a great choice to store your “metal objects” in, as metal and moisture don’t play nice together.
Simply place the item you want to store inside your hidden compartment, (like your top secret candy stash) 😂
Trace around the item onto the foam. Then simply cut out to the depth that will keep your item snug inside the hidden compartment. The Kaizen Foam is layered so after you cut around your item, just peel back the foam layers inside of that area and you are done!!
The woods that we use for our flags are Spruce and Poplar. All of 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 shinning sea, in the United States of America. If getting our wood, just a stones throw away, from the monument to four of our nations 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 worlds 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.
