Kreg Owners' Community

Hey Everyone,
     Just got my Kreg Jig and excited to start using it. Was wondering what everyone thinks is the easiest thing to try to build first. Any suggestion???

Picture frame I would do.It is straight forward I would not even use mitered corners just straight flush corners
I did the garden or potting table. Using pressure treated 2X4's and deck boards, wound up costing me about $36. Its similar to the work table, and my wife loved it.
If you have a garage or a lot of tools the first one I built and would suggest building would be the work bench. I used if for my miter saw and bolted it right to it and put wheels on it to move it all over the place. It works great.
FYI - This question has been featured on the Kreg Jig Facebook Fan Page!

I would tend to agree with Robert... depending on your experience level and current state of your 'shop', aworkbench is an excellent choice since it can help you build your next project!

Here's all the information for the Kreg Workbench!

I say without a doubt that you should make a Kreg table or workbench becuase once you use it you will start thinking of a thousand things you want to build.
I used mine to build a closet organizer.

New Kreg 720Pro

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