I am still doing joint experiments using a 1/2” straight bit in my router while applying different tilt angles to my tilting router lift. I thought a star design with strong, positive glue joints would be a good design test. The star itself is 7” tall and 7 3/8” wide. You can make these as deep as you want. This one is 2 1/2” deep.

Good planning has yielded an excellent result. I like the proportions and it has the look of a well built project.

T.D. Reid,
Yes I built the lift from plans I got from Matthais Wandel at his woodgears website. It is posted on my projects page. The more I experiment with the tilt feature of the lift the more I like it’s joining options.

That is very cool. I like how you show the sections in different colours, as it really helps to see how the parts fit together.
Thanks for sharing your experimentation.

Thanks Julie, the different color sections help me visualize the finished piece. Since I make them full size I can use them as patterns.
