Here’s two carrier boxes I did a while back. For things like this I normal draw out on newspaper and use an adjustable protractor to determine the angles. A true table saw miter sled makes the joints seamless.

As a Navy guy myself, I have to say that I like it :)

Actually, I was a corpsman. The nickname came from high school…though I did want to be an aviator. I spent most of my time near Oceana though ;)

Probably quite a few, I suspect.

What sled do you use?

one is glass and one is plexi…lexan actually. I had a local glass place cut the one and I cut the other with the band saw.

sled? If you are talking miter sled…I use an Incra one.
