Secret Location, USA

The inviting entry of Gate #102, with its speakeasy portal.
During the pandemic and the endless smokey skies of early fall 2020, Ben and Charles decided to forego their normal delivery service for an opportunity to get out of the shop. Within the same neighborhood as the delivery, they made the rounds of those projects in the vicinity from which no completed photos were sent back. The photo below was the first stop, taken two years after delivery of the gate. The two years spent razing the existing home and building a new home, coupled with a full re-landscaping design, bordered by mature hedges that obscured everything but the gate. A home with security personnel stationed on the walk directly to the right of this photo as Charles and Ben arrived. Within minutes, three more security personnel appearing through an axillary gate. The woodworkers, standing on the public sidewalk, assessed the situation and returned to their truck parked at the curb. A home, they later learned, occupied by FaceBook's Mark Zuckerberg.

The basic geometry.
1) Option 1 is to draw a circle and dissect it into 8 parts, as shown on the cardboard below.
2) a much simpler option is to draw a square equaling the outside dimensions you're creating. In this instance, 17" x 17".
Divide it into thirds with 3 horizontal lines.
Divide it into thirds vertically to create 9 equal squares.
Connect the points on the 4 outside corners to create four equilateral triangles.
Connect the four sides and erase to=he original square and you have the Octagon.

The inner grid pattern must be joined to the octagon in segments. A realization that will ultimately make itself obvious if you stare at it long enough.
