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!!!

     Has anyone used one of the Kreg Universal Stand configurations as the base for a miter saw workstation with fold down wings?  I scrolled through the pics in the community and all I saw were using a DIY base cabinet.  I have an extra Kreg router…Continue

New Kreg 720Pro

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

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