 Building a hexagon enclosure 2017-02-26 From Kenneth:Hello, I have a question for you. I have a special needs daughter and I want to install a ceiling fan into her room. The fan is 42 inches in diameter. I would like to build a wooden hexagon enclosure to protect the fan. I would like the enclosure to be at least 2 inches wider than the fan on each side measuring from flat surface across to flat surface. How do I figure out the length of each panel so that I can miter them and assemble it? Thank you for your time.Answered by Penny Nom. Cutting a hexagon from a disk 2014-04-05 From Paul:I am a machinist and sometimes need to make a hex from round material. If I know the distance of the flat sides opposite one another of my hex, how can I calculate the size of material I need to turn to give me the right diameter to finish the part with six sides?Answered by Penny Nom.
