For those that do off-camera flash I've combined a few tutorials on DIY beauty dishes learned over at the strobist group on flickr and made my own version. Here is a link to my post listing the parts and what it looks like:

Here is a quick shot of it

Its really made for portraits not product photography - but I like the quality of light and how even it is:

That is really nice. Im thinking I will end up making one as well. Can you post a picture of the 8" reflector front side with the mirror. It says it only has a 3" mirror on it. Is that enough? If you have a picture that would be great!
