I came across this website on how to make wood stars, so we got right to work, as it looked pretty simple. This star is made out of mahogany 1×2 standing on edge. It is approximately 16″x 16″.
We tried to build it with the 1×2’s laying flat and the dimensions didn’t work out, so we adjusted the dimensions and built it anyway. I like them both. The first star has 3 coats of marine varnish, so it could be hung inside or outside. The second star is also made from mahogany and has two coats of spray polyurethane. These would be great for décor or holidays.
