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.

The concept took a little thinking but in the end is quite simple. I made a basic sled on which I traced 2 sides of a hexagon, then secured stops against these markings. The trick is that the second stop needs to be removable so you can make the first cut. Then I use a toggle clamp to secure the second stop and make the remaining cuts.
