So my super talented friend Jaime from That’s My Letter ran into a little problem years ago. 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.

Luckily my miter saw goes to 60 degrees but you’re probably wondering how you’re going to make a 54 degree cut if your miter saw only goes to 45 or 50 degrees. Well lucky for you, Jaime shows us how to make a wedge jig here.
