Egyptian cut??? Well we had to call them something!
Oh, I mean, These awsome 10 sided cubes of maple, inspired by the shapes of ancient egypt!
They measure 17” tall & 11” square on top. I started with 11X11X17” blocks of maple. I have the makita beam saw – circular saw with 16” blade. I set it to 22 degrees & cut all around the top as deep as it would go (6.5”) then conected the dots & cut as much as I could with the beam saw again. & finished the cuts with a sawzall. They came out pretty nice, so I will be making more after I finish the 10 that I am making now for Christmas.
