Learned to make this star from Pete at the Woodcraft store in Austin, Texas. The center star is made from mesquite, the middle star is made from ambrosia maple and the border star is made from walnut. From point to point the star measures about 40 inches and is quite heavy. It is formed from many unusual angles and requires a buddy to perform the glue-ups.
I love the star and hope to make more, but first I want to fashion some jigs that would make it more one-person friendly.
Many thanks to Pete.
