If you’ve ever make hexagon coasters or hexagon-faced drawers like I have, you know batching out perfectly identical hexagons can be a challenge. So I designed an adjustable hexagon cutting jig for the table to saw that can cut hexagons from 1 inch to 18 inches in diameter.

The custom sliding stop slide along a piece of T-track embedded in the sled and locks into place with a star knob. I used these same design of sliding stop block for my miter saw station build. It works like a charm!

Coll idea DIYM’... you must have great control… hope you have a reliable stop… I’d probably finish up with two halves after my second cut (if not the first).

Personally, I use a Mitreset... that way I can cut a 5 or 7 sided hexagon.

-- If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

I’m at the point where if I make one more jig/sled I may have to throw one out, but this is tempting. Thanks for the video. Very clear.
