Greetings from the socialist capital of America – California.Why do you think they call it the ’left coast’?
I like these a lot. I would really like pictures/info on the shop made taper jig

My sympathy, I once lived in “The peoples Republic of Santa Cruz” also in Sunnyvale and San Jose. (22 years total) I escaped in 2001. I plan to photograph and make a blog of the taper jig/sled I made. Thanks for your kind comment.

Agreed, great work. I too would love any insight as to the jigs used, especially for the star. I have been interested for a while in making a 3 dimensional star such as this. I will keep an eye out for future photographs and blog on this. Thanks for posting.

Hey JimThese are some very nice projects with some pretty tough angles. I look forward to seeing your special taper jig.

I have posted a blog today showing my taper jig/sled. The tough angles are the ones in the center of the cross and star. They are cut with a miter saw and making that last one fit is a trial and error process.
