Kreg Owners' Community

While most of this web site seems to be devoted to the Kreg Jig, Kreg does have other very fine products as well. Over the last couple of days I have been using oak plywood for a project, and I want it as right as I can get it, and to cover the plywood edges I am using 1/4' X 3/4" oak trim. My Kreg fence allows me to use the router table as a jointer and so I decided to put it to the test. Using a spiral bit in the router and setting the fence to take 1/32 off, it put a clean smooth face on the edge of the ply wood. I ran a test piece of 3/4" birch through and measuring with a vermeer caliper I found that it trimmed exactly 1/32 off. When I started to fit the trim, I found that it was wider than the plywood and the router did an excellent job of trimming that to the desired width.    And I was going to spend a $1000.00 for an 8" jointer!!! THANK YOU KREG. Your router table and precision fence is a great investment

P.S. Is there anyone else using the Kreg router table and fence??

I have the router table secrets mag it is very good. The woodsmith series on pbs is the best in my opion of educational wood working. I'm always learning something. I watch them mutiple times. They have good plans. Which go with the program.

Hello Artie;

Just as an after thought, something else that you might find usefull (if you have not already got them) are a couple of books from the Woodsmith/ Shopnotes people. One is the Router Workshop and the other is Router Table Secrets. Obviously there are likely many other books that are as good or maybe even better. Lots of good stuff  in these two though.

Thanks for the book recommendations guys. I'll look into all of them.
Hi Johnny; I took a look at the Incra at the Calgary Wood Workers Show when I bought my Kreg table and fence. I truly believe that is very precise and easy to use, but for me, it just simply used up too much space, and space is one thing I do not have a whole lot of. The Kreg setup bars are on my want list

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…
