Question from sharon:

I am trying to make an octagon garbage storage bin and i need to know the measurement of the outer and inner sides i can't get them to fit together what am i doing wrong


You need to cut eight identical pieces for the frame with an angle of 67.5o. See the first diagram in RD's response to Mike.

Write back if I have misinterpreted where you are having difficulty.
