For one of my ongoing projects, I’m trying to cut and join several small, regular cut diamond-shaped pieces that are the same general size/shape, but would attach to one another at different angles. It’s hard to explain, but imagine the surface of the star image in the attached photo.I'm trying to make something with a similar fabrication process, but with an uneven top surface.

I love using compound angle joints ;-) What’s the question?

oops – gotta get used to this system. The question is, Does anyone know any process or technique for cutting lots of small pieces with compound angles so they’ll all fit together to form an uneven surface, but in a pattern like the picture I posted the link to?

I would set up a jig with stops.
