So my super talented friend Jaime from That’s My Letter ran into a little problem the other day. She was trying to build this wooden star she had seen on Pottery Barn from a 1×2 and couldn’t figure out what angles to cut the wood at to get the perfect star. I was honored that she turned to me for help and, with a little CAD, was able to quickly determine the angles that she needed. Be sure to check out her step-by-step post detailing exactly how she built her stars.
