Kreg Owners' Community

To all of the Members of the Kreg Jig Community

 

IT IS WITH SADDENED HEART THAT I ADVISE YOU THAT OUR BROTHER AND FRIEND OF THE KREG JIG COMMUNITY HAS PASSED AWAY.

ON MONDAY MARCH 04 JENS JENSEN DIED OF A SUDDEN MASSIVE HEART ATTACK ON HIS WAY TO THE HOSPITAL IN EVERETT WASHINGTON.  THIS WAS A SUDDEN OCCURANCE AND NOT EXPECTED.

Jens and I became good friends trading woodworking thoughts and ideas for many months.

I last heard from Jens the weekend before his death and then no further comments were sent to me.  His last email to me was cheerful and happy and spoke of no health issues.  He was totally involved with his wood work.   After a couple days he did not answer my e-mails and I was beginning to wonder if his ailing mother had passed away.  I never expect this sad news.

  His wife Barb let me know of his death tonight 03-12-2013. 

I am letting the community know so that thoes whom were close to Jens will know of his passing.  I know he many friends in the Kreg Jig Community and his love for woodworking will be remembered.  He will be greatly missed.       Jay Boutwell

Friends are forever,

you might lose them

but you'll never forget them.

I am very saddened to hear this as he was not only a devoted member of this Community, but also a friend to us all. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

I will miss Jens sorely. I learned much from him in the few short years we were acquainted.

They should post his profile to the main page I think that would be a nice remembrance of him.

Jay,

Thank you so much for posting, I was wondering also, I had not heard from him in a while either.

Jens always liked to talk about Bluegrass and Woodworking, he was a good friend and will be missed in the community.

I am so sorry to hear of Jens' passing.  I so enjoyed seeing his work and "knowing" him through this forum.  He will be missed.  Peace and grace to his family.

I am very sorry to hear about Jens. My thoughts and prayers are with all of his friends and family. He was one of the first people I met in this community and he will be greatly missed. 

Jay, I am so sorry to hear about Jens.  I did not know until today.  He will be truly missed.  His family will be in our thoughts and prayers.  George & Betty

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 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…
