This star was made as a wedding present for a friend of mine.
I’ve been wanting to make one of these for a long time, but didn’t know where to start so I must give a big thanks to Aggie69 and his angle calculating spreadsheet. Once I knew what the pieces needed to look like, I didn’t have much problem designing the jigs.
As far as my cutting methods, I think they are a little different than others I have seen described which seem to have a lot of wood wastage. I used my table saw and created two fixed jigs that will work for any sized star. I will try and do a blog entry at some point.
Size: 24” diameter x 3” deep
Wood: Pecan a.k.a Hickory
Finish: General Finishes Arm-r-seal (semi-gloss)
