Here’s a walnut and maple star I whipped out yesterday morning with my table saw. These are fun to make. No special tools just template and table saw. Took about 30 – 45 minutes after glue up.

Nice star. Is it flat or raised? How big is it?

Really nice!! I’ve been wanting to make one of these, but haven’t taken the time to figure all the angles…think you could show the how-to?

Excellent job on the angles. Tried several of them some time ago, none came out that good. What kind of template did you come up with?

I will do a how to, but once you see how easy it is don’t blame me for having a house full of them.
