Wooden Star Stirrup

This Cast Iron Star Stirrup was on the website, but I have not been able to find anymore. So, I decided to make one out of wood.

I placed the stirrup on plywood and traced it to make a template.

I traced the star section and cleaned up the lines before I cut it out on a scroll saw. Once the templates are made, I can trace this pattern onto any wood I choose.

This is cut from mahogany. When I glued and screwed it together, it broke apart.

I cut another one from oak and glued it together. I used a brad nail gun to secure it.

I spray painted it with a textured paint.

I made another one and stained it to show the wood grain. I used epoxy on this one, which seems to work better.

These Star Stirrups will make great western home d├ęcor accents!
