Kreg Owners' Community

I'm new to working with wood and my wife bought me the toolbox kit from Lowes.  One project I plan to do is a platform for my front load washer and dryer.  Is your standard kreg jig/screws that come in the Lowes kit strong enough for this project?  I had planned on doing this with just plain screws and wood filler but the wife surprised me with this kit.

Plenty strong for that project.

Use the Kreg pocket hole system---

a lot simpler and faster than the other method.

Thanks for the response!  I was concerned that I would need to get the HD jig for this project.  I think I'll still eventually pick up the HD jig down the road for future projects.

I have already been bookmarking different plans for beginners to use the Kreg on.

Toolbox kit?

Which one did you get, cause in the one advertised on the home page here has the 4 Kreg jigs....

  • 1 Kreg Jig® K3 with exclusive front-side clamping
  • 1 Kreg Jig® HD for heavy-duty construction jobs
  • 1 Micro-Pocket Drill Guide that’s perfect for small projects
  • 1 Kreg Jig® Mini, a portable pocket-hole powerhouse is called "The Toolbox Master Collection" and costs $299.00.

The toolboxx kit that Lowes carries is different from the one on the Kreg website.  This is what my wife bought

I did my platform for my washer and dryer with Kreg i can  jump on it all day it wont budge..... Permanent beast mode....

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…
