Kreg Owners' Community

Summer is a great time to head out to your garage or shop and get to work building the projects you've been dreaming of! 

Please take a few minutes and share with us what you've built this summer. You can share your favorite project, but we encourage you to share any and all of them!

Please include at least one photo (more than one is great, too!) and a description of your project: why you built it, if you followed a project plan, the type of wood and tools used, etc. Please upload your photo(s) directly to this discussion.

The goal here is to create a central resource for outdoor project inspiration, generate some fresh discussion, and show off what you've worked hard to build this summer!

Thanks in advance for sharing! We can't wait to see your projects!

I built this outdoor shower with a propane instant on hot water (tankless) Used Trex deck PT posts and rails and Ceder fencing. With the Kreg Jig you do not see any of the screws on the inside rails ...very cool.

The oriental inspired coffee table I posted about previously is completed.  Its pictured and described in the projects section.

It was a challenging but fun project.

Built this Little Free Lending Library for a friend. The roof will get copper cladding, and the door insets will be art glass. The lower level is for children's books, the middle fiction and non-fiction, and the top art books (she is an art professor). The shelves will take books 12 inches by 12 inches.

The library will sit on a short post in her front yard, with a sign saying: Take a Book, Leave a Book.

The basic construction is fairly straightforward, using about one sheet of plywood, plus a piece of recycled oak and some leftover redwood. All will get sealed. The hinges are outside-entry-door, powder coated for weatherproofing.

Ernie, thanks for this great design.  Our town wanted to put a Little Free Library station at the door to the town hall, and I volunteered to build it.  I shamelessly ripped off your design, which was very well received and for which I always give you credit.  I used Baltic birch plywood for the body and cherry for the front and roof, which came out great.  I also put leveler feet on it; I made them out of hockey pucks.

Gary, great job. That looks awesome. Love the hockey pucks! My friend Carol mounted the Little Free Lending Library I built for her in her front garden, and instead of copper decided to add a "living roof'' made of moss. The library has been a huge hit, with neighbors and friends filling it with great books in the first week.
Borrowing and sharing is what this is all about, so glad my design was helpful.

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

Miter Saw Recommendation

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…
