This plan will show you how to make your own wooden star for use as decoration or for some other project. See attached plan.
1x4 8', Qty 1
Cut 5 pieces, at least 8" long.
So last night I decided to try my hand at making a wooden star. I’m an Engineer in by trade so the angles were easy to figure out but the actual cutting was not since my saws were designed to make standard cuts to larger pieces of wood. For this project I used a piece of nice pine I had laying around. Don’t remember what the dimensions were from the store but it measured ¾” thick and 3 ½” wide. Luckily I have access to some higher end drafting software so making this tutorial was a breeze. Please enjoy and happy building. See attached plan.
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
