Here is a BB trap I created, both my brother and I are into pistol shooting, he wanted to be able to practice indoors with a high powered BB pistol, so I came up with this, its a box made out of 3/4 birch plywood, i stapled a piece of carpet in the back, and in front of that are 2 pieces of carpet hanging free, the idea is that the hanging carpet will asorb all the energy from the BB, and it will fall to the bottom and not bounce out, if it does make it through the hanging carpet it should have lost enough momentum to not be able to go through the back, or bounce out through the carpet. Also I painted it black because someone told my black boxes are indestructable. Or that is the theory behind it, I will see if it works this weekend. I wouldnt call this fine wood working but it was a good way to use up some scraps, and was quick to do in a furnace of a garage.
