Kreg Owners' Community

Hello my my name is Tom Comeau and I am from Barrington N.H. I have recently retired from the fire service and need to get back into carpentry. In my younger days I had built a few homes but mainly did general constuction kitchens, bathrooms, small additions.

  I recently worked on a cabinet that my dad had started but was unable to complete before he passed away two years ago. He had precut the face frame and had it all ready to be either dowelled or biscuited together, those were the methods that we were use to using. A friend I work with knew of the project and had given me a Kreg Jig. Now this may sound like a sales pitch but within 2 hours I had the frame together and mounted on the cabinet using only the jig. I thought that was pretty quik for the first time, I am really impressed with the tool.

I am sure Dad is proud,  welcome to the life of Kreg and it is no sales pitch, we all have one and know how much it has made our joints look better and assemble with ease.  Please post some pictures
glad to hear you like the jig, much faster and easier than biscuits or dowels. keep making the projects. hope to see some pics soon.

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

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…
