Craft your own wood star serving tray! Fill with treats and bites, and bring as the perfect hostess gift, or display at your next holiday party.
We also love this wood star as wall decor or a photo frame. Free plans from Ana-White.com
- 1 - 1x2 @ 6 feet long
- 1 - 1/4" plywood @ 19" x 19"
- 1-1/4" and 3/4" brad nails
10 - 1x2 @ 13" - both ends cut at 30 degree bevel, ends ARE parallel
Cut the smaller pieces in step 1 from these boards
The back 1/4" plywood should be traced and cut to fit
Set the miter saw to 30 degree bevel and cut 10 1x2s, with ends parallel, to 13" overall length, long point to short point measurement.
Now set the miter saw to 24 degree bevel.
Cut the 13" long piece into two pieces as shown in the diagram.
Glue one shorter and one longer piece together. Hot glue works really well, but regular glue is good too - just let it dry.
You can also nail the joints for added strength, but it will be a little tricky nailing at an angle.
Nail and glue the sections together to create the star.
Place the wood star on the 1/4" plywood and trace the outline on the outside.
Cut out with a jigsaw.
Glue and nail with shorter nails to the back of the 1x2 frame.
