If I want to make 100 wood stars, what should I do?
Since it is 100-stars, I want to make a long piece of wood with a star shape intersecting surface, then I can easily cut it to a lot of pieces with no matter how thick I wanted. Then I think about to make a pentagon bar with 5 triangle pieces gluing on it, and also I need to make some jigs to cut the angles.
I made 3 jigs, but none of them worked as I expected. I ran out of my time and still don't know how to make straight cutting.
As a compromise, I chose to use a easier way, the sander. I finally got my pentagon bar, even this process only worked for 6 now, not for 100. Then I glued, drilled, and re-sanded them to make an earring box.
I haven't figured out the angle-cutting problem. I will keep trying.
After I finished this documentation, the idea came out that maybe I made jigs right but use them wrong. For example, I tried to stable the jig-01 on the left hand, then just push the bar through the saw. I should try place the jig-01 at the right hand and push the bar with it just like my sketch.
And another problem: the jigs I made can only be used for cutting the first 2 edges of the pentagon !
