To my dear Polish brethern of the Wood, How well you doth challenge me in seeking truth in the mathematical mystry of your mind and vision of the elusive Octagon. 
 
Routing a grill is always a nice touch.
A Master cabinet maker, Steve Dincognito stopped by while making the jig and showed me how to keep the small pcs. from exploding or chattering while routing them by leaving a 16th of an inch. Then cuting them out with an exacto knife.
Thanks Steve.

This octagon window seat is made of pre finished clr. Maple plywood inside and wrapped in vgrv.1x6 and painted poplar trim. The top is made of cherry. There are 3 dust free storage areas with lids.

It doesn't look like it would be that hard to build  but the outside walls were the worst I have seen. They were all different sizes by as much as 2", leaned out 1/2", and the floor dropped in 1/2' and pitched 3/4" from one side to the other. The 2 pc, tall base had to wrap around and tie in on the other side. The cabinet is level and a true octagon on the inside.
