Step 1: Tools/Materials

I scavenged the latch from a lap table that you could angle.
Step 2: Cutting the wood
I wanted something small enough that it would fit on my wrist. I decided to make it eight sided with the sides on the bottom and top of my wrist a little longer.
I cut the wood at a 22.5 degree angle. I came up with that number by dividing the number of sides I wanted by 180. Cut all your wood using the first piece you cut as a guide. The wide side of the pieces on the side was about 1 inch. The top and bottom sides were about 1.5 inches.
After cutting the wood sand them down.
