Kreg Owners' Community

Hi all,

Was thinking of buying The Picture Frame Guide Book by Jerry Cole, any review would help, never made a picture frame so does it suit beginners?  Any other books out there worth getting for this type of project? Or if anyone has made frames with Kreg Id love to see pics

Soon I'll be making a frame for my sister. I've never made one before, but I'm not worried because the Kreg Jig has made all my other projects easier than I thought possible before. I have total confidence that I can whip up a frame without problem.
here's a few i made for my son. i made a rabbet in the back with a router. there is clear glass in each one. the charge for such small pieces of glass is nominal. you can get special UV glass from michaels but it was about triple the cost.

I made some cabinet doors this weekend with mitered corners, and plan to make some picture frames the same way. I did find out rather quickly that I needed a 22.5° block so I could get the screw hole at the correct angle.
Are you using half lap joints

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…
