Octagon table with moulding

The angles were very challenging. I wanted to replicate the angles of 55 degrees. But of course my saw wouldn't cut them. So I made a quick jig for my miter saw that allowed the supports to be cut on their side just 10 degrees off 45 degrees equaling 55.

Estimated Cost
I used mostly cull lumber from Home Depot from 2x6s & 2x4s. I made my own moulding from 2x4s. Purchased the 1x8 full price. Around $100 with stain.
