Kreg Owners' Community

I'm new to owning a Kreg Jig Master System. In fact, I'm still waiting for it to be delivered to me on Monday, 4/6. In the past, I've built kitchen cabinets, wall cabinets and other things by using a finishing nail gun and glue to hold stuff together.

So, my question is what to do with the various pieces of oak plywood I have left over that's in various lengths and widths? I'm not very imaginative, I will admit that. I have pieces up to 4' long and 6" wide. I have some pieces that may be 17" x 20" and just a variety of everything.

I'm looking for ideas on furniture, cabinets, or just small items that I may be able to make and sell at a craft fair.

Any ideas?

Ralph, I was given some 3/4" oak vineared plywood and some old table leafs that I am currently making a storage cabinet for our cabins storage closet. I'm not finished yet but it's turning out pretty good. The only $$ I have into it so far is a box of Kreg 1-1/4" fine screws and my time. Here are some pictures I took today.

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.

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…
