Dining Room Table

In March I moved in with my girlfriend and neither one of us had a dining room table. I told her don't worry, I'll make us one. She asked me if I knew how to create one, so I took her here to this site and showed her all of my previous projects. After she saw the pie safe, she basically said, "OK, if you know how to make one of those, then you know how to make a dining room table. I trust you."


I did have to tell her, though, that I'm not a chair maker. We'd have to find…

Ammo Crate Benches

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve written, but I have still kept woodworking, trust me. 2010 has been a whirlwind ride, that’s for sure. A new girlfriend, a new job, moving soon into a new townhouse, you name it. I didn’t forget about anyone, just had a lot on my plate this year.

One of the…

Pie Safe

It was way back in February when I was at the house of the newly married couple I gave the hope chest to as a wedding gift. Everyone was partying pretty well and occasionally admiring the chest sitting in the living room. One of the guests, Heather, was paying particular attention to it and said, "Badger," my paintball callsign by the way, "when are you going to make me something?"

You have to know that Rick and Heather have done SOOO much for me over the years that of course…

Dog Grooming Table

I got a call from my niece, Becky, who is going to college, and has a part time job as a dog groomer. You might remember the sign I woodburned for Dogs at Play. That's the place she works at in South St. Paul, MN. She called me because she said her grooming table is falling apart, and could her super-favorite uncle in the whole wide world come to her rescue? (I added the adjectives there, myself) I said sure, and would arrive after work on Monday the 22nd of March.

When I…

The Kreg Jig Multi-Mark

Last Thursday I received my Multi-Mark in the mail. I opened my package and pulled out the tool. I couldn't wait to open this thing up and try it out. It's a quick assembly of putting the metal guage slide to the plastic handle and screwing tight the brass knob. The tool allows for 90 degree square, 45 degree angle, and 0 degree straight edge. I was also happy to see that a leveling bubble was included in the plastic handle too. One can always use one of those.

I grew up…

Don! It's been a while. I wanted to be sure and let you know that we're planning on deleting the 'blog' section of the KJOC for good and replacing it with a 'Product Reviews' section since the blogs were so under utilized and often confused with forums. Before we make the change official, I wanted to give you and some of the other users who utlized 'blogs' at a high level an opportunity to move your great content over to the forum section as well. I wouldn't want to lose all of your great projects and stories about your 'Kreg Journey.' If you coudl take a few minutes and transfer those over to the forums, it would be really great! Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for the comment. The pollen held me hostage for a while and I haven't been able to do anything (outside anyway:-).

Don, Thanks for the comment on the log home. We have only been in it for about eight months and believe me there is a lot to do on it. I wish I could make interior doors, they all need to be replaced. All the door jams a very thick, 9" - 12" in some of the doorways.

All The Best,

Hi Don, I have a simple little question about the difference between the K3 model and the K4 model, I myself have the K3 and the level that locks the wood into jig faces me, on the other hans the K4 model the level is facing away from you. Do you know why this is?

Hi Don you ask about the plans for the Potty Chair, I to did search the internet until the cows came home, with no luck. So I had to break down and spend the money to get the store bought plans. The webpage where you can go is
It only $8.95 and the product number is #KF20. I hope this solves the problem as to where you can get it from. Have a great day from the west coast of Canada. Ed Morris

Looks like the 'Hall Tree' blog is back in the right time period, but content is still gone... Sorry about that, Don! I have no idea what happened. :(

Kreg Foreman

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.
