    Octagonal Greenhouse

    LaurieS79, sorry, my old laptop with the program is not functional. The ridge block where all of the rafters meet was eight pieces ripped on a table saw. The blade was set to 22 1/2 degrees, so when the pieces were glued up, they formed an octagon for the rafter attachment. The vent / cupola was a little more complex, because the walls tilt out at a 10 degree angle. I had to use a compound miter saw. I listed the website above that I used to figure out the angles. The cap for the cupola was a little more tricky. I had to use a shop made jig to hold the piece upright as it was passed through the table saw. A tennoning jig would be the safest way to cut that piece. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful. I didn't make a cutting diagram for this project. I had a load of used redwood ...

I had a load of used redwood and wasn't worried about running out of materials, and I wasn't in a hurry to build it. I made a lot of changes while building the structure.

    Folding Table

    Thanks for the plans Carl. No problems following your plans, but I did improvise with what I had available. I wound up using 3/4" Douglas Fir and just wiping a coat of Boiled Linseed Oil on it. I also misdrilled a couple of holes during assembly of the top slats. My mind wandered and I wasn't paying attention, and had to use a little putty. The only thing I couldn't figure out was the reasoning for the 1/8" space between the dowels and the first top slat, whereas the outer side slats but up against the dowels. Either way, great design and very sturdy. I weight 230 pounds and have no problem using it as a folding chair to support my bulk. Its primary purpose is what you designed it for, a table, to sit between my wife and I at my son's baseball and football games.
