Rustic American Flag Cross

In this video we are going to show you how to make a Rustic American Flag Cross out of pallet boards.  If you’re like use, you love the rustic look that using pallet boards in your projects can yield.  So in this project we are going to make a cross, and make it look like the American Flag.  What a great way to say God bless America, and One Nation, Under God.

Materials List:

1 – 4″ LG piece of pallet board

1 – 11-1/2″ piece of pallet board

1 – 12″ piece of pallet board

1 – 1/2″ x 11-3/4″ piece of scrap wood

1 – 1/2″ x 3-1/4″ piece of scrap wood

(We ripped down a scrap piece of 2 x 4 to 1/2″ thick and cut it to fit)

1 – Saw tooth hanger (Or hanging hardware of your choosing)
