    Ok among other things I have plans to build is a decorative display for some of our baseballs. Being a round object they will roll off the display, so I thought I would maybe make circles where I wanted the balls to sit but have no clue how I would do this. I have router, dremel and a tablesaw for use. Is there some sort of a router bit that will remove a 3 inch circle or am I out of luck?

    Sounds like you have everything. The Box joint jig Colin has demonstrated and built is a very good design that is easy to build. This jig will allow you to cut single box ends or you can gang cut several at the same time.

    One item that I think you could really use on every set-up for your boxes is a set of Brass set-up Gauges or some refer to them as set-up blocks. These little gauges really speed up positioning your boards and guaranty complete accuracy.

    I hop you build Colin's Box Joint jig and as always one of us can help out should the need arise.

    Hi all, I haven't forgotten about this great community in fact I have been spending my kids inheritance on shop stuff.

    Work Bench (on wheels)
    Scroll Saw
    Disk/Drum Sander

    and a host of other cool things.

    Having said that, I have pushed my wife's credit limit to the max and do not have the $$$ to buy my Router Box Joint Jig so I am here asking if anyone has plans for a simplified one (I have seen them on youtube).

    I also recently purchased two new 10in blades for my Table Saw a 60t ABT and an 80t ABT.

    I have a box of router bits that include the straights roundover etc and have identified a 35 bit set I want to get when I repay the wife's credit limit a bit.

    So do I have pretty much what I need to start making my cutting boards and small boxes for Christmas?

    Very clever idea. Has got me thinking about how to collect dust from the DeWalt DW718 using my 6 inch ClearVue DC. I was thinking total hood catcher to fully use the 800 CFM/5 HP cyclone. But your idea has got me thinking about a shroud and a collection point under the saw base.

    Thank you for sharing your idea.

    I second Derek on the Thien Top Hat. I built one a couple of years ago and it has made a HUGE positive difference in my DC. I converted a 2.5 HP Grizzly unit making a portable unit thinking I could easily connect it to the desire tool. Good/Bad idea!!! Now that my shop is super full I can no longer move the portable unit. Hopefully this fall I will redesign and build a stationary unit with duct pipes running to three principle places in my shop.

    For the outer edge between the top and bottom I used Plexiglass which a lot of woodworkers do. Not only do you get to see the dust flying around but you can easily tell when the dust bucket is full. I'd like to install an automatic cutoff when the dust bucket is full and will consider doing such with the stationary build.

    The stationary build will use a Brute 32 GAL container, anything bigger will be too heavy for me to lift. :(

    Also the stationary build will utilize a Wynn Nano filter.
