« Part 4: De koker Part 5 of Spinnekop (windmill) series Part 6: De pannenkoek »

Having finished the “onder tafelment” and the “boven tafelment”, now I will make the posts, and because the shape of the underside of this windmill is octagonal (in most cases it is a square ) these part are called octagon posts (achtkant stijlen)

To make all the angled and compound cuts I first made a jig
