This is a project for my fellow Texans. It’s apiece of 2×12 white cedar planed, then cutout the shape of Texas, routed at the edge, scribed, and then painted with watercolors. Rout with keyhole bit on the back to hang on the wall and smile. I like to use the white part of the western red cedar because it takes the color better than the heart part of the tree.

Wow Darrell, nice looking texas plaques, great job on the shape i really like it. I lived in texas 3 different time when i was in the Army. I was stationed at FT Hood, 1982 for 8 monthes, 1991 for 2 years, and 1996 for 4 year. When i left there the last time i moved to South Carolina and that where i am now. I miss a lot of stuff about texas. Thanks for posting.

Isn’t it funny how us Texans love to incorporate our flag into just about everything? I’ve made quite a few wooden Texas flag signs for gifting. The routed edge definitely enhances the design. I’ve never thought about using watercolors to give it that fainted worn appearance before. Maybe I’ll try it next time. Thanks for sharing and looks great!

God Bless Texas! I love to make Texas flag stuff and I am not even from Texas!

As a fellow Texan, I am very proud to view your project and post on it as well. Plus I’m proud to live in Texas, though I could do with less ice and cold in DFW this week. :)
