Geometric Table--The Octrisquaragon

  • January 15, 2016


After making a Twisty Table, I decided to try another geometric table. I googled "geometric tables" and came across one like this at Urban Outfitters and thought it would be fun to make. I figured up the angles and cut them on the table saw. It was tricky to make sure all the pieces were the same size and correct angle. I tried to cut the triangles out of smaller pieces of wood, but I learned that the last side I cut would always be "off" unless I started with a big square. Next time I will do it like that even though it scraps more wood.
