Adrian,

 

Download the Kreg Cabinets for a start, its full of how to use the jig as well then scan the hunderds of pictures in the "photos" section here, then hit the "free project plans" section, failing that surf the net for free plans, or if you must you can buy some, but only a a last resort as most of the free plans are from people like yourself who are sharing Knowledge, currently I am building a box for my router bits and to the disgust of my wife its a scale coffin, its all from trial and error and I am documentating and photographing each step so I can make another one later or share my knowledge with otheres if they desire

Helllo!

My name is Jan Erik and I am from Norway.

Have been woodworking for some years, mainly speaker boxes, but have grown up and started making furniture.

Looking forward to hang around in this community and learn more.

Hey, all. My name is Jim, and I'm from north central Illinois.I worked as a carpenter for a few years and went to college. I've been an electrician now for 11 years, but have continued to work with wood. Just bought my first Kreg jig and I love it. Much simpler than mortising or doweling, and it really speeds up my cabinet production. I'm on the edge of building all new cherry cabinets for my kitchen and this system should really help streamline the job. And holy (fill in your word) the cost of a trailer full of cherry today (just dragged one home).

I just bought 4 x 2m lengths of quad trim 6mm to 12mm and they were AUD 35.00, so I could imagine what a trailer load would be, you would need to hire an armed guard to protect it!!
Really makes you want to use natural resourses to build with, but there is no alternative which is more cost effective and produces the same result.

Hi Guys. my name is Malcolm . I live in south Florida , after twenty plus years of trim carpentry and working in the building trades, buying and using the Kreg jig system was the most satisfying experience in my career, I'm looking forward to learning many tips and techniques from this forum.
Glad to see people joing.   Yep , it is a great system.

Hello everyone, I'm happy to be part of the Community!  I'm from Richmond, VA, and now live in Montgomery County, Maryland.  I used to help my dad in the workshop when I was a child, and am now taking it up on my own.  I love building furniture, so that's why I joined the Community.  I hope to be able to find and share furniture plans in the Community.

Welcome Katie, funny how a little time with dad grows into a hobby. If you look to the right side of the screen (providing you haven't already noticed) their is a list of free projects to scan through. If you write down what projects you are interested in next, maybe someone here will guide you or even have plans for those projects. Or perhaps you could help a lot of us with our projects too.

Hello Thomas

Not sure about being funny, no sooner do you realse that your Father is really a very knowledgabe person and you can learn lots from them they pop off on you !

Otherwise  I agree with you in regard to the other comments.

Yesterday, I received an email wanting my opinion on Kreg adding high end workbenches to their product line and wanted to know before I clicked the link if this is a legitimate survey or some phishing scam. Here's the link I was provided (…Continue

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

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…
