To cut a hexagon, you would cut a line 30 degrees in from the surface,
with
the center of the stock being your point of contact. Do this to both
the
top and bottom of two opposite sides.

• Yes, it will. From the old corners that get moved in by the cut, you make the angle more obtuse by 30 degrees, giving you a 120 degree corner. the new

Yes, it will. From the old corners that get "moved in" by the cut, you make
the angle more obtuse by 30 degrees, giving you a 120 degree corner. the
new corners created out of the centerline of the stock start at a straight
line(180 degrees) and are made more acute with two 30 degree portions
removed, so they are also 120 degrees in the end. equal angles = equal
sides, so you have a regular hexagon.

• ... I think it was said earlier.... All polygons add up to 360 degrees. If you have 6 sides, each of the six angles must be 60 degrees. To lay out a hexagon

> anyone know how to get a hexagon pole?

I think it was said earlier.... All polygons add up to 360 degrees.
If you have 6 sides, each of the six angles must be 60 degrees.

To lay out a hexagon on the endgrain, find the center and draw a circle
using a compass. Set the point of the compass on the line somewhere
then scribe another spot on the circle. Move the compass to that point
and repeat all the way around and you'll come up with six points.
