I am building a steamer trunk using the plans that I purchased at Rockler. I have never used these corner trunk corners before. The lid requires that the corners be modified so as to conform to the less than 90 degree angles on the curved top. These brackets are very sturdy and I am finding it difficult to bend them to fit the corners.
Editor's note: With a style of corner such as this it is common to give the the edges of the box or lid a slight radius to give a better fit.
"Rockler is my only source for fine tools and woodworking supplies. Every item I have purchased from them has been better than I anyone would expect from other suppliers. Thanks to them I have begun the wonderful and rewarding journey into turning, from my lathe to all my turning tools and gadgets, I am a fan. Rockler has enhanced my knowledge and expanded my enthusiasm. They are customer oriented. " -
