Hi JoeThis is a drawing I did of the basic process for making a Bethlehem Star. You can scale this up or down for whatever finished size you want to build.You can use 3/4" lumber to make flat versions or 1 1/2" thick to make beveled versions. (in my experience you would be limited to an overall size of about 3 feet for a beveled star because of the limitations of blade size on standard table saws) Best RegardsDuncan
I use a Tekton 6696 shoe rasp. I place the rounded side of the rasp against the wood, push down and draw it along the grain of the wood. Repete as many times as you like untill you get the effect you want. Then i stain with dark stain, paint (dry brush), sand edges, stain with dark stain and finally... poly

just a quick post.. My friend Tim (listed below as Timator) sent me a picture of his set up... He is doing his stars with a radial arm saw. Very inovative for sure! Great job Tim!
