david ,   very nice job on the twin glass tower,s  , well done , thank,s for showing your project , Jim !!

Thanks James but its not done yet still waiting for the glass shelfs and mirror's to be cut.

Nice job on the display towers david .

Thanks Mick with some dado's and a kregjig the glass worked out great.

Derek,

TIP: When adding a top finish to a surface, and the fluid gets into the predrilled holes,

place a thin cloth over a 1/8" dowel, insert it into the hole. twist/turn & lift out the dowel to remove the excess liquid that has entered the hole.

Reposition the cloth on the end of the dowel rod and repeat.

Perform this proceedure before the coating dries.

If after the coating has dried, chuck a drill bit into a hand drill---

with slow turning of the hand-drill, the coating will easily come out.

(The flutes of the driil bit, will cut-out the dried coating material).

Hi David;

>>>...When I stained and urethaned, the holes picked up some of the urethane and I had trouble getting the shelf pins in. I should have waited until after the wood was finished and drilled all the holes then./p>

Thanks guy's but the wife done bet you all to it belivie it or not she cut off the ends of Qtips and put them in the hole's and it worked.

David,

I've used Q-Tips, but---

I've found the fine fiber cotton threads will often times pull out from the wad,

then I'd have to pick out the loose fibers.

Since I keep my nails trimmed short, it was difficult for me to grab those little fibers---

then get wet stain, varnish or the like, on my finger tips.

Perhaps if I added some long pointed fake finger nails and sharpened them to a point, it would be easier to grab those little buggers---or use tweezers.

nice choice. i just finish my first project with this same jig (5mm version).  it worked better than expected for me. super easy to use, accurate, and consistent.  even when you drill on the other side of the board, as long as you index it the same, the holes on the opposite side of the board were perfectly align!

Thanks Adam it worked out great for what I was doing.

Replacing existing slides but cannot remove drawer front

The Kreg slides are made to work with new drawers before putting on the drawer front. In my situation, I cannot remove the existing fronts which means when reversing the jig to hold the draw, it’s at an angle. Not sure what I should do to make them…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…
