With the help of a very cute little helper who held the template steady, my husband traced all the way around the entire template.Then, he simply turned the template 90 degrees and lined up the bottom corner of the template with the bottom right hand triangular corner that he had already traced. This gave us a nearly perfect five-pointed star shape.For the tight inner corner cuts, he abandoned the circular saw and used this folding jab saw to cut them by hand.Some of the smaller wooden pieces came loose during sawing, so we added more glue and clamped them back down again for a few more hours.Once all the glue was dry, we flipped the whole thing over and cut off the excess wood using the circular saw again.He followed the wooden star template to trim the excess, being careful not to cut the wooden backer board.

You could use paper or even a cardboard box to create the template, as long as it starts out about 48” square you should be fine. In case you are a more visual learner, let me show you the step-by-step process in pictures.Some of the pieces were so old and rotted that they broke off during construction.
