Oh My Stars! (Or are they snowflakes?)

Furnished content.

Oh My Stars! (Or are they snowflakes?)Good Day LJs,Its time to replenish my fall craft show inventory, so I decided to explore the world of snowflakes.I used soft maple and Spanish cedar leftover from a previous project. I built a small sled to cut the 6 parallelogram sticks from the wide stock at 30 degrees, checking the sawblade angle frequently with a digital angle guide (Wixey).For the decorative cuts on each stick, I set the tablesaw blade to various depths and distances away from the fence. I glued the sticks together, alternating the maple and cedar to make a long 6-point blank.In previous builds, I had used the miter saw to cut the flakes from the blank, but was losing a lot of product due to the saw blade's width.I finally figured out how to “safely” use my bandsaw to slice them, using a 1/4” thick plywood base to make a zero-clearance base for the bandsaw blade. This way the flakes slide though on a solid surface and do not get jammed in the gap surrounding the blade as the blank is pushed through using 2×4 push blocks.All told, about 200 snowflakes were born in a long afternoon, but it was well worth the time and effort.
