I’m making a board game and I need some decagonal disks (flat decagons) on which I can put numbers on the edges.
For my prototype, I used some scrap large-ish dowel discs and free cut the decagons from a template on my bandsaw.
Not pretty and not scalable.
My initial thought is to create a jig similar to a lathe that I can tun 35 degrees and cut each face and then take the decagonal cylinder over to my table saw and cut a whole-lotta disks.
I would make the cuts either with my table saw or a router.
Is this the right approach? Would the router or table saw be better (each face is around 1/2 to 3/4 inch to allow a number to be placed)?
Any good ideas on precise 35 degree rotations?
Thanks for any thoughts!!!
