Thanks! Glad you liked them.
I think 9 15/16". We wanted the side to be 2' in length. I used the calculator at http://www.pagetutor.com/octagon_layout/
Ah ok. The octagon side is 9 15/16". So the uncut board was sourced from home depot, and it's an inch thick, 6" nominal width. I cut that board into 9 15/16" sections. Then cut out about two inch squares from the edges to form the T. So that gives you a 9 15/16" T top, 5 15/16" T bottom, and an inch of thickness. The underarm would be 2"x2" square. Link to wood here: http://www.homedepot.com/p/1-in-x-6-in-x-6-ft-Prem... Of course, dimensions will vary based on the size of the planter box that you want. you can use the calculator to figure that out.
