I took an old door, cut it in half and proceded to make a corner shelf out of it. I started stripping it, but the wife wanted to leave it looking primitive.

I joined the two halves to 2x2 with pocket screws, of course.

Here's the topmost shelf. You can see the crown molding I put around the top, just to give it a little flavor. Notice the pocket screw into the 2x2 at the apex. Since the door panel was too thin for pocket screws I put 3 screws through the back into the shelf.

The hardware was left in its partially stripped state. I took the outside parts of the door handle off and epoxied the inside piece to keep it in place. I put a 2-1/2" piece of edge banding on the bottom shelf as it is about 2 inches above the bottom of the door. This gives it a 3-point support on the floor. Oh yes, the wife changed her mind and decided to paint the finished shelf.

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…
