Kreg Owners' Community

Good Morning,

I am looking to start raising quail. I need a cage that is approximately 15 inches high x 2 foot deep  x 72 inches long. Is it possible to split a 2x4 and still run that length or am i going to see sagging over time? My intent is to be able to build these boxes and stack them. Obviously the bottoms would be cross braced. This would save me money in the long run, but at the same time I don't want o spend the money and time splitting wood only to have to rebuild the entire project out of 2x4s. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…
