Kreg Owners' Community

Anyone interested in the chest plans feel free to contact me. I have a local place I get my lumber from that's very reasonable so the prices may fluctuate based on that, but it takes roughly 16 board feet to make minus the top. If a solid top it takes roughly 20 board feet. The ones I made out of oak I used a 3/4 in ply topped wrapped in solid oak banding that worked out with a 3/8 roundover. You can use rail and stiles for the panels or for flat panels I use 1/4 in. ply and a slotting bit on my router. The chest measures 22x42x18. A chest out of oak generally runs about $150 and cherry $175, I have made 3 this year, one as a hope chest for my 18 year old daughter and 2 for friends for their wives for Christmas. Rockler has brass plates that I have put on them with the names and Christmas 2009. Here's a material list to start:
16 to 20 bd ft lumber
2 boxes of tongue and groove cedar lining (takes almost the whole 30 sq ft.)
1 30 in. piano hinge
1 lid support
2 2x4 1/4 in. oak ply (if cherry, i used rockler for cherry veneer packs $15)
1 2x4 3/8 in MDF (for bottom)
KREG JIG and screws!!!

Hey folks, I'm sorry I'm just now getting back on here. I lost the plans in my laptop when it crashed, but I am trying to take measurements off of the one that I have so I can post them on here for everyone. Sorry for the delay>

Thanks Justin , when you have a chance I would like the plans fredo649@hotmail.com  Thanks.

Could you send plans? Great looking chest.....

I have had a horrible time trying to get these plans done, but this is what I'm going to do as long as everyone can be patient with me.  I am going to build another chest and document every step through photos and do a "my project".  This chest can be made from lumber at your local "box" wood store.   I will get started in 2 weeks after Christmas more than likely and do a post every week.  I do appreciate everyone's patience and I will start a post in 2 weeks.

Thanks as well I would love a set of plans for my brand new grand daughter..... bcarlin88@yahoo.com

I just joined the community and found your comments on the chest.  If it is not too late, I would like a copy of your plans.  I really love the chest and have many women in my family who will each want one, from  my wife to daughters, in-laws, and grand daughters.  I love making gifts for them.

Thank you ever so much.

Pantry slides for heavy application

  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…
