I love this piece! it was done by my daughter in law and the wood was from The Wood Connections. It is cut from 2″ thick wood and the lines between the stripes are from a router which adds a great texture element to the stripes. This was a simple project, it was just painted with a wash in barn red and navy blue. Originally it was for the 4th of July but we all liked it so much, it will be a part of our decor. I am thinking about doing a couple more as gifts. Hope I can find more of the wood since this was done for the 4th.
