I have some questions about converting lengths and angles to stock timber lengths. For economy I want to use standing 8 ft landscape timbers and want to choose the most economical size with the least waste. I plan to use cut full lengths for the frame and timbers split in half for the skin. I plan to have a single door spanning 2 sections with with a center split on side hinges. I plan to have split side hinged window in every other section on the second tier from the ground and have not decided on whether or not to have a straight stem base of any dimension. I have done a timber octagon gazebo that is now 5 years old and has worked out great and received many complements. I could use any suggestions on lengths or angles or any other helpful thoughts.

I'm thinking of using a 120"radius making the x struts 47.73, but I'm a little confused on the angles to miter each end (first tier, so that the "A" ring will be level with the base before I cut the second set of x struts.
