Recently a Kreg site Viewer made an interesting observation, and titled this finished product a "Pulpit".  I have to admit, I was thinking the same thing when I was making it.  I will once again be using my "Pulpit" and Kreg Square cut today on a portable Car Shelter I am building to extend coverage in preparation for our Fall & Winter weather.

Also, of someone has concerns about the Saw's electrical cord making contact with a shelf while the Saw is in the Caddy.....all you would have to do is add a couple of inches to the Face Plate and raise the Cleat bar up a couple of inches, etc.  I have to admit, I was most impressed with how well this Caddy supports my Saw.....there is no/no worry at all of the Caddy with the Saw tipping.....it seems to be perfectly balanced!

I appreciate your kind comment, KregRep.  I was careful to credit the plan concept to 'Woodsmith Tips'.  I adapted their plan for this project by using my K4 Jig set up [my 1st Kreg project posted on our Kreg Community site [64 photos] with Kreg pocket hole screws.  It was a breeze and totally enjoyable using my K4 with its storage unit [initial concept taken from the Kreg site].  I take much longer to do things, but I'm retired and I thoroughly enjoy my Kreg 'journeys' and I like to adapt things to my personal preferences.....and I enjoy finding ways to overcome perceived 'stumbling blocks'....and it is so much fun to think about these aspects overnight and return to a project with a fresh mind.  I never cease to be amazed at how the mind can work to solve perceived problems!  I am so thrilled with taking on these 'simple' woodworking projects for the first time in my life and I find it most fulfilling.  I am very glad that I 'discovered' Kreg!  A Canadian fan of your products!

Great idea, John. Compact and effective at protecting the tool.

Measuring angle of table saw blade 1 Reply

Obviously for pocket joinery having the wood pieces cut square is critical to having a good joint.  This minimizes the likelihood of overtightening screws, as well giving a stronger more attractive joint.  Does anyone routinely measure the angle of…Continue

Festool Domino 500

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

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
