Octagon Table

Really enjoyed making this one. The plan was great but i ran into a few difficulties. The 2x2 trim was the hardest. I settled on 22.5* miter because my saw has a positive stop there and i thought it might be the angle that i needed. Careful as the plan doesn't have much room to experiment unless you want to buy an extra 2x2. If your selection of 2x2 is anything like mine, that could be a huge endeavor. Hard to find a straight board in texas.

hey! im currently working on this table & am running into the same trouble with the 2x2 trim. did the 22.5 miter cut work out for you for the trim pieces or was there a different angle that you ended up needing to use? thank you!
