My very first build. Ever.

My daughter and her boyfriend showed me a picture online, either Pinterest or from a store, I forget which, of a dining table they liked for they hose they were into process of buying.

I must have said that I could build something similar for them in order to save them some ££'s for, next thing I know, I was busily scouring the www for examples of great looking but simple to build tables. I soon came across a design which used the Kreg pocket hole Jig and screws and was determined that this was the perfect way for an absolute beginner as joinery - i.e. me - should proceed.

The jig was quite easy to buy here in the UK but, to date, getting supplies of the screws has been a touch difficult and did delay the project for a short while until I could get some 2.5" screws.

Anyway, I built the table and my daughter and her boyfriend are delighted with it. Despite one or two slight balls ups (that's a technical term, here in the UK) with cutting the notches in the legs and (almost) using too long screws to attach the top to the legs, I am very happy with my first ever build.

I am already looking for other ways to use my new Kreg jig! My workshop is crying out for some organisation and new shelves etc.

The Kreg Project Center is great by itself, but 2 KPC's are better than 1 when you want to set up a 12 ft. work station in a couple minutes.…

The first thing I will do is set price aside and focus on the tool and why I bought the Domino.
