Default Barn Yard Style Stars

I am looking for the most simple way to make '3D barn style stars.' The ones that raise to that 30d angle.

The only decent info on this is a blog over at Lumberjocks.com that I have found.

3D Stars #1: Program for Calculating Dimensions and Angles for 3D Stars - by Aggie69 @ LumberJocks.com ~ woodworking community


He uses a radial saw and I do not have that. I do have several other tools.
I need to make them 14", 12" and 10".



Do any of you have an easy way of doing these?

Do you know any resources I can look up?

Jon, can you post a picture of the star you have in mind? I can visualize 2 different 3d stars and I'm not sure either one is the one you have in mind.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Had never heard of that one either, but maybe like this?

No idea what it has to do with a barn yard, though!

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

Your best bet would be to get someone with a CNC router to make that.

I do not want a CNC router to do it. If that is what I wanted, I would be searching for CNC users in my area, not asking yalls insight.
