I posted a blog on my website that describes cutting polygons on a table saw and making objects that involve polygon shapes. Pattern-following and other methods are described. Various objects are included in the discussion, such as bowls, table lamps, and a dodecahedron sundial. Click here to read it.

Very interesting and detailed document. As a lover of geometric shapes this will give plenty of food for thought. Thank you very much for posting.

Wow Don, that is quite the treatise on polygon’s… I wish they would have taught us that geometry so clearly in Engineering school :)

Now the big question…you do this for fun?!

Thanks for posting. I will definitely be referring back to this.
