Kreg Owners' Community

I built a small table for one of my "Weekend Projects" on Extreme How-To.  The legs had two sides that were flat and the other two continued the curves of the lower portion.   I used the two flat sides and my Kreg Jig to attach the 1x4s between the legs.
The legs were purchased at Lowe's precut oak. The table top was a stock poplar size and the remainder of the lumber was oak, bought in sizes close to those needed for the long and short sides of the table top.  
The project was a simple one. However, next time I will avoid Poplar though as I had an issue with profiling its edges. 
What are other ways I could use the Kreg Jig with curved parts?  Weekend Projects is meant to be simple. The Kreg Jig keeps joinery very simple, but what are the best ways to use it on legs and other parts that have curves?
Regards,
Hal Jones

Thanks,
I do like the jig for holding the angled pieces. I think I will take a look at some pieces made traditionally and see if I can improvise a solution. Thanks for your repsonses.

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…
