Making stars for decoration is quick and fun, and will develop very specific hand tool skills you can use throughout your future as a woodworker.
The sequence of making the stars will show you how to make the points and thickness of the pieces with precision, and the result is a beautiful star.

Born and raised Texan here, not a single lone star on display. Gotta fix that now, thanks!
If you live in Texas you are proud of believing the Earth is 4,000 years old, climate change is a hoax, evolution is a myth, voting rights must be restricted, and Trump is your Prophet.
I love you from Texas!!! Getter Done 😉✌💖
That’s funny, you don’t sound like a Texan, lol!
a little different approach than your previous star video. no shooting board. Nice. love making these. Thanks you for the technique info. Harold
On the final assembly, use small pieces of tape for each joint instead of one large piece of tape.
Would be possible to tell us what saws are you using?
It’s great to see some nice content from you on YouTube again!
Paul do you mind me asking how old are you? I’m 57.
Marquetry has been around for hundreds of years. How would they have done it differently in the 1700’s or earlier?
Good luck everyone, would be asset to anyone tool collection. Thanks Paul 👍
When doing the glue up of the star, is it necessary to put it under something heavy to keep it flat, or will the tape be enough to maintain a flush flat level?
Great. More ebony videos please!
I am going to make a suggestion to make sur that the center of the star is perfect. But this is a theoretical one. I have not tested is so it may be useless.
When cutting the 36° angle, aim for 36.00001° instead of 25.999999°.
Make 4 points.
Glue 2 half stars (2 point and 1 half point).
The 2 half stars can then be glued together.
Why do it this way. Well, is a mathematical perfection world, the (inside) side of the half stars that will be glued should be perfectly straight. Most likely this will not be the case, but because we aimed for a little bit more than 36°, we can plain this go make it straight without hitting the center of the star and correct this.
The only problem that I see is that it will be difficult to correct the last point if, say, the ebony part is a bit too long.
Thank you Mr.Sellers.Just wonderful craftsmanship.
Yav artık yazacak bir şey kalmadı, bir de tahta salatası tarifi verirsen valla yapacam.
maybe a quality digital protractor would be a good investment
The only problem with these videos is that one can only give the thumbs up once. Great educational content keep it up!!
So good to see your build videos back Paul. I’m wondering if you have any plans to do a chair build ? I want to give it a go but not sure the best way to start. I’ve watched you clock series many times and used your design for a Christmas present for my dad , e was over the moon with it. Keep up the good work.
Paul, I’ve just found your videos recently and I have to say they’re all so fantastic! Thank you for showing us how simple woodworking can be!
Parabéns show de bola 👏🇧🇷💯
Yet another great video, and it’s nice to see some more project videos. Don’t get me wrong, I love the tool setups and vlogs and the others, but I’ve missed these.
I enjoyed the music in this one. 🙂
a block plane …. yep, told ya.
Great lesson, though a bit uncharacteristic in its advice. "accuracy doesn’t matter" "you can guess the correct angle" "just eyeball it" and yet still the finished piece is perfect…
Nice hair cut Dear paul!
Thank you sir. You are the Star here I hope to use this method on my wife Birthday gift box.
These videos are always so enjoyable and informative. Thank you Paul for all that you share with us.
I watched this last night but I fell asleep so… here we go again 🤦♂️
You definitely used one on George Bush’s furniture didn’t you?
This is something where a little sawdust can save any imperferction afterwards.
Always great information
"May God bless your hand" that how we Ethiopians thanks when we sets.fied
Superb craftsmanship: always a pleasure and a fascination to watch.
How did you manage to sharpen such tiny saw ( as you say at minute 8:24)?
so what about creating the recess on the work piece?
Paul, wanted to ask, what type of staff are you rubbing in to the saw? Some sort of oil? Cheers. 16:54 "Wipe off the excess and put it underneath the bench" haha. Love it.
Mr Sellers, I appreciate your content. I requested you to make a wooden plane for people not owning a plane? Have a great day and stay safe.
The title is " How to Make and Inlay a Star" You did not demonstrate the inlay process?
Thanks Paul, this explained the process perfectly and gave me the confidence to have a go myself
Beautiful Star and Awesome tutorial 👍🏻
Paul your looking good this video, you have a glow to you. Or it’s the hair cut. Nice video
If you’re having trouble with the final glue up of the star, and have a bit of patience; you can make a sub-assembly by glueing two or three pieces together first and wait for them to set. Don’t forget to use the rest of the pieces to check your alignment.
What is the rocking chair (0:32) called? What I heard is not safe to search on Internet…
Not good when you mumble and talk under your breath.
Look at Paul with the snazzy new haircut! 😁
You had me at LoneStar!
Probably the best teacher on the web.
Just curious, did you ever work for Fleet’s wood shop in Texas?
