HokieMojo was right: I should have been blogging this, from the get-go. So … playing catch-up … I’ll re-create the series, and simply link to the old ones. And away we go ! [no need to comment on anything you’ve already seen/commented on. I just want to make it easier for others … who may have interest … to follow the RAS project in chronological order—a HUGE benefit to the “series” feature ...

So …. with leftover plywood from the construction of the ol’ ChupaCaja, I made me a dust collection box. ID is about 8” wide x 8” deep x 8” tall. The joinery is (IS it called this ?) half-lap (...
