Forum Title: Teach Me A Little Trig Please?
A tried to build an octagon roof for the BH competition with flat stock. I faked it by laying out a circle and bisecting it 4 times, connecting the dots then cutting each wedge at 22* bevel.. It was all f'ed up (I ended with 6 sides). I sanded and doctored it up and called it good enough I have no idea what pitch I ended with, but I would have liked a 12/12. So, please explain how to figure the cuts needed. I could have stick framed it easily enough, but wouldn't understand the math. 8 sides, 6 diameter, 12/12 pitch. Lone, your roof is perfect! I'd like to know how you did it.
