I have made a number of these stars and have made two sliding jigs to make them with my table saw. One is a taper jig to make the cuts that form the five points and the other is a miter jig to cut the interior miters where the five points meet. Star is made of 1/2’ oak and walnut and the jigs are made of MDF and “T” track. The central miter joint is all end grain so it is a weak joint. I sand an angle on the back of the miter joints before assembling to form a groove on the back of each miter joint which I fill with epoxy.
