DIY Box Corner Decorations.
I was working on a pattern for a fretwork box. I had designed a corner decoration similar to the brass box corner protectors you can buy. I though some of you may have a use for these on boxes you build. I designed four different styles for this pattern book. 
Notice how I sanded the walls thinner after I glued the pieces together. The thinner you can get the final corner decoration the better it looks. It's easier to glue together when the walls are thicker then sand it thinner. I will probably go even thinner on the final version.

This test piece was cut for Baltic Birch Plywood. You would want to use a nice hardwood that either contrasts or matches the wood you use for the box. . 

I used 1/8" thick for the top and the walls are 1/4" thick. The walls can be any thickness that fits your box. Also you can enlarge the patterns to fit larger projects.

JET DC-650BK Dust Collector with Bag Filter Kit

If you have any of the major power tools in your shop you need dust collection. Table saw, band Saw, router table, planer etc are all candidates for dust collection. You can get away with a shop vac for the small tools but for the real dust makers you need dedicated dust collection. 

My shop is not large but I knew I wanted dust collection. This Jet dust collector fits in the corner of my shop. It woks great. I added a cyclone system to it and that just made it even better. Once you have dust collection in your shop you will wonder how you ever lived without it.

  • Hook up one to three machines for optimum dust cleaning
  • Quick-install collection bag makes emptying and re-attaching a snap
  • Single-stage design for economical and quiet operation
  • Includes four casters for maneuverability and total portability
  • Permanently lubricated, totally enclosed, fan-cooled motors are rated for continuous-duty
