Kreg Owners' Community

My brother wanted to build some bunk beds for his great-great grandkids. 

He started his family early as did he's kids and the kids, kids,

anyway since I am an electrician by trade or was until I retired I wanted to help and also use my new Kreg-jig.

He showed me how then allowed me  to run a router, yep 68 years old and I have never run a router before.

The person we were building them for wanted two seperate "loft Beds" I call them bunk beds.

we made the legs out of 4X4s the sides from 2X6s and slats from 2X4s over kill I know

To fasten the 2X6s and the 2X4s into a frame we used my Kreg-Jig and wood glue it worked beautifuly.

I went away for a weekend and when I returned we were out of 2 1/2 inch screws so off to Lowe's for a couple boxes.

They are handy but costly, I decided to order some from the internet when I ordered the screws I thought we had another frame to complete unbeknownest to me my brother had completed it while I was gone so unless I build another ARK I have a life time supply of screws at least 2 1/2 inch ones.

the beds turned out just like she wanted after sanding and staining the kids now have their own bed.

sorry I never took any pictures. I know they are only bunk-beds but they allowed me and my brother to work together again since we built his house 20 years ago. He suffers with COPD and spinal-stenious I to suffer with spinal-stenious it took us weeks to do what we use to do in the evening after work.

I did order a router 68 but still willing.

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation

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…
