# FAQ: How To Make A Nautical Star Out Of Wood?

## What are the angles for a wooden star?

The first thing to notice is that the angles that make up the middle of the star have to total 360 degrees. Since a star has five points, if we wanted all the points to be the same, the center angles would be 72 degrees (360/5=72).

## What are the angles of a Texas star?

The inside angles are 108°.

## What angles make stars?

A regular polygon, like the one that sits in the center of a five pointed star, has equal angles of 108 degrees each. The points of a golden five pointed star are all 36 degrees each, making the other two angles of each point of the star 72 degrees each.

## How do you make a wooden angle?

The formula involves dividing 360 by the number of sides to calculate the corner angle. Then divide it by two to get the miter angle. If you’re making a five-sided project with all sides equal, you divide 360 by five to get 72 degrees. So each joint or corner forms a 72-degree angle.

## What are the measurements of a star?

To measure the distance of a star, astronomers use a baseline of 1 astronomical unit (AU), which is the average distance between Earth and the sun, about 93 million miles (150 million kilometers). They also measure small angles in arcseconds, which are tiny fractions of a degree on the night sky.
