I’m in need of some suggestions. Tonight I tried to make a solid wood icosahedron (d20) out of an inch cubed piece of bloodwood. My first mistake was choosing this wood. It is super tough to work with because it is so hard and the sap burns so easily.
I started with this:
And ended with this:
It isn’t pretty, accurate or easy to do but I was working with the tools I had. The process is actually pretty simple. Its taking off corners at 21 degree angles.
I basically used this hand miter saw to start the cuts and then got frustrated and tried to finish it on the belt sander
Ideally what I would need is a saw exactly like that but like a half to a quarter of the size. That’s where you folks come in. I need suggestions! Have any of you seen something like this that might help me out?
What I would like to do is do up a little jig so I can bang out a bunch of dice in my spare time when I want to get away from my computer.
Just as a quick edit: I don’t need to follow this route. If anyone has an idea of how I can do accurate cuts like in a different way please let me know! This is totally a learning experience.
