Thanks to both replies. Getting the fist 2 sides the right width and going from there seems like a good start. Figuring things our in sketchup is a good idea as well and I will play around with that here momentarily. However I think MonteCrisco was giving me advice for making an octagon with 8 sides and I am looking at making a 6 sided hexagon.

Just to be clear though. I wish I had an awesome shop with lots of tools but I am more one the art side than the woodworking side of things. So I have no planer at the moment. I have a decent Ridgid table saw and thats going to be about it for getting the cut down besides sanding it. It will be ok if its not dead flush. My main problem was getting the angles right.
