Picture of Hexagon Jig

There are several ways to cut a hexagon out of wood. You could use a table saw with a miter gauge, a band saw, miter saw, and so on. When you want to batch out several hexagons and make them all the exact same, it can get tricky. That’s why I decided to build a simple hexagon cutting jig.

Step 1: Tools & Materials

Here are the tools and materials I used for this project:

Nice mod for a table saw sled. Adding a fence over the kerf will help keep the runner from binding, too.

My method uses a modified crosscut sled with a flip stop.

Excellent work, great results. I absolutely need to swap the wooden runners on my table saw sled to plastic ones!

Yes, this is great. I have no idea yet what I might use this for but I downloaded the plans. I'm sure something will come to me.
