    Yep it's cut out of a 4x4
    Not sure of the angles but saw it done at a local wood fair some time back
    Nice optical illusion.

    Looks pretty straight forward to me. The question is...why would anyone want to do it and use it for a doorway LOL

    It's a railing post and a cool looking one at that.

    OK messed around with this for a couple hrs today with a scrap piece of 4x4.

    I drew center line and then lines around the post 6" apart.

    I then drew the diagonals and put an x on the pieces to be removed.

    I cut a couple out by hand first to get the layout for a simple jig.

    Then I figured out the angles and threw this jig together and placed it on the post and clamped it.

    I cut the rest out with the jig and got this.

    This is the slapped together jig.

    Now I used a 7 1/4" skill saw and it didn't quite cut all the way down to get 1 3/4" for the center line so I cut the rest by hand.
    A 8" would work well.
    You could just cut this all by hand with a good sharp saw. My arthritis plays havoc with me when I do that so I did the jig.

    So after all of that I decided to use it with an old sundial I have had laying around for thirty years.
