## What angle do I need to cut wood to make a hexagon?

Cutting a 60-degree angle on each end of all six pieces results in six pieces of wood that will fit together and form a hexagon. You may cut the six pieces and angles for a wooden hexagon on a miter saw using a custom fixture.

## What angle is a hexagon?

A hexagon has six sides, and we can use the formula degrees = (# of sides – 2) * 180. Then degrees = (6 – 2) * 180 = 720 degrees. Each angle is 720/6 = 120 degrees.

## Are all sides of a hexagon equal?

Hexagons are six sided figures and possess the following shape: In a regular hexagon, all sides equal the same length and all interior angles have the same measure; therefore, we can write the following expression.
