We are constructing a 10 x 10 octagon deck and don't know how long each side needs to be?

Hey Doug did you know we have an octagon scale on our framing squares?

Look for the dots and 5 10 15 etc. on the face of the tongue.

Say you want to rip an octagon from a 10 inch post...

Take your scribes and place it on the first dot and span to the 10th dot.

Now place center lines the post, from each center line like a compass, mark the angle cuts each side of the center lines & connect those you'll get an octagon.

It can be used as a rough scale too, place the 10 inch span on 12th scale of the square and scale up. Use the twelfths scale to represent 1 inch... 3 and 4/12ths would be 3' 4 inches kind of thing.
