Of course a hammer & set of screw drivers.  Now what was the 1st tool I bought that I actually built something with??? A Kreg Jig Jr. graduated 3 weeks later to Kreg Jig 4 will never look back.  I have added to my "toolbox" extensively since getting hooked and I have a plethora of things planned to build in 2015.

Well back when I was still in high school I bought a set of automotive repair tools and metal fabrication equipment and spent a few years doing automotive repair a building race engines for a living. 

Then I bought a hand gun and some handcuffs and went into law enforcement.  After retiring from there I bought every woodworking tool that I could get my hands on.  Built a cabinet building business and continue to buy woodworking tools.   The first tool that I bought from Kreg Tools was a K-2 kreg jig.  Still have it as I can't wear the thing out even thought I have tried.  Bought all of the new  Kreg jigs and tools and now an enjoying a busy life working wood.

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…
