This looked bit challenging watching mtmwood YouTube video. But didn’t really expect it would be this challenging. I struggled quite a lot on getting the stars perfect for this project. Though behind schedule, I was able to achieve a finished product with few minor faults and pretty close to the flag ratio. The lessons and experience learned making this piece was priceless just like this beauty. Wood species used is purpleheart, Maple & padauk.

How did you cut out the stars, They look much better than the ones on mtmwood YouTube video, theirs was done on a cnc, these look to sharp in the points for a cnc. Great job!!

I pretty much followed mtmwoods process. Got a flag ratio template image from google. As well. I was only off by about 5/8” on width and length.

I cut them on the CNC with a 60 degree vbit and inlayed them. I made about 5 test piece on edge grain before realizing that the Maple I am making the stars out of, also need to be endgrain. End grain mole solved my chip out and shattered tails on the stars. Boy, the old saying… Doing the same thing over and over expecting different result… That’s me.
