Kreg Owners' Community

There is a blizzard watch on the East Coast.  Forget about milk and toilet paper - run to your closest wood store and get 2x4's and 1x3's for this Kreg Jig HD snow fort project!

When I was a little kid, I got stuck in a collapsed snow fort.  I always wanted to build something that supported the roof of a snow fort so that it would not collapse.

I did my best to make this design structurally solid.  I have put over 200 lbs of weight on top and it did not shift.  We have used it for snow forts, flower stands, etc.

I did not show all of the pocket joints in the sketchup - you get a rough idea.

Have fun!

Well, to clarify, I couldn't find anyone weighing more than 200 lbs who was willing to jump on it to test it ;-)  Thanks for the comment.

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…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
