Thanks!  I did the final assembly inside the room and then realized that it won't fit out of any door!  Its a good thing we aren't planning to sell the house because she told me that if we do sell, I have to build another table.

Dear Wolfgang,

 

Thanks for your welcoming reply. Your first project outcome looks nice!

 

In fact, my biggest problem is to find a space to restart my woodworking hobby

which I enjoyed a lot when I was in the US in the '80s. According to my wife, the

sweetest thing that I did as father and husband for the past 30-year married life

was the cradle I made together with my wife for my first kid before she was born.

(Of course, it must have been a rather lousy cradle from the viewpoint of expert

DIY people.) 

 

As you might know, most Asians live in an apartment. So it is difficult to have a

space to get indulged into woodworking. Maybe I need to join a woodworking

club just for that reason.

 

 

 

 

Wolfgang,

For a Dachshund you are a very clever dog, my Dad had one many years ago but I didn't realise that they could make such great woodworking projects, let alone be able to use a Kreg Jig so well.

Ha ha tee hee

Keep up the good work.

 

PS Dachshunds are a very popular dog in Australia, possibly because they are so great with kids.

Thank you!

 

Yes, Jumbo is very talented!  He helps me in the shop all of the time, although sometimes he has trouble with the table saw.  He tells me his legs aren't long enough to reach it, but I think he is just trying to get out of work!  ;)

 

Jumbo is one of three rescue animals that we have.  He is the first Dachshund I have ever had and as my wife points out, us German's always have an opinion!  How can something so small be so loud?

Hello Andy,

Welcome to the world of Kreg tools

 

Now on this website there is an amazing amount of information to be attained.

On a day when its wet or you need some interesting things to have a look at, on the site in particular check out the photo gallery.

 

Now if you go back to the 2009 era and you will find a young lad by the name of Liam building a project.

He has got to be one of the most dedicated Kreg users I have ever seen, for example, its 3:30 am and he is beavering away, not to mention fully fitted out with safety glasses, boots and apron and I would be remiss in not making a special mention the fact that he is wearing a cammo tee shirt.

So, all in all  he has got to be an OK kid.

The photos all start with 100_nnn and all the Kreg tools are shown in detail as he is working away.

 

Regards Robert Brennan

Hi I'm Ray Lattman from Wallingford, Ct. I've been on here before with these desks. I wanted to pass on some info I discovered. The set screw on the drill bit stripped out the allen screw so I bought a stainless steel one from truevalue and also got a new allen wrench. It now works like a charm with no slipping. I have gone through over 300 screws in the last few months just to give you an idea. Attached is a previous pic new ones coming soon.

Hi

My name is John. I have been a woodworker and oveall kinda handyman for 50+ years. My father was very much of the same so growing up it was only a matter of time till I got rolling. I have never been afraid to try just about anything. I have done general carpentry work and dabbled in furnature building, wood turning etc. I picked up my Kreg system a few years back at a woodworking show in the outskirts of Detroit. Several friends of mine at work were also into the same thing so we are like kids in a candy store at such events. I have not used my Kreg as much as I had hoped to but do plan to make up for that. I retired 10 years ago but have been involved with the Boy Scouts for the past 38 years and that has taken a lot of my "Spare" time. Yes, I have worked with the boys to teach them some of the skills. I have now retired from that part of my life and hope to do a LOT more woodworking.

Awesome desk!

Hi I'm Hafiz from Malaysia, I started to build my own kitchen wall cabinet before  I came across how easy and effortless the kreg jig was. Then I decided to try with Kreg Jig jr. for the start and hope to proceed with other product later. I wish all of you can furnish me with woodworking information using kreg jig and I am starting to collect woodworking tools and jig for my free time project. :)

Product Reviews

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…
