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 ;)

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.

What type of glass do you use and how do you cut the shapes? I make shadowboxes and can’t find anyone to cut anything but square and triangle and I would like to get more creative like this type of stuff.

It’s 1/8” low glare glass cut by a local glass shop….located in Virginia Beach, VA.
