Octagonal Low Pedestal

Got myself some African deck flooring (I think the wood is Massaranduba) from a friend and entirely out of those pieces I made this octagonal low pedestal for that angel sculpture.

Unfortunately my pictures didn’t come out very good but you get the idea.

What do you mean your pictures didn’t turn out very good. I think your pedestal is a wonderful compliment to the statue. A very classical design for a very classic statue.

Congratulations on a great piece! How did you join the sides, cut at an angle and glueing?

AHPDEB Thank you !|
Yes the joints where cut at the proper angle and then I made few 1×1 poles with matching angle to hold the joint, everything was glued and screwed from inside :) !!!
