Kreg Owners' Community

I've just purchased a Peachtree Dovetail Jig system and now I'm having second thoughts.  It was a bit pricey and don't know how many times I'll use it, if I use it at all.  I got it at a trade show special pricing and have always had an interest in making dovetails, but the question is how often.  So to the fellow woodworkers here, tell me how often you use yours and is it worth it.  Is there a better piece of equipment out there or not.

Love hearing everyone's thoughts.

If you want to become really proficient at hand cutting dovetails I suggest in the least buying the video set from Rob Cosman. He is an excellent teacher. I went one further after watching the videos and attended one of his seminars on dovetails. How anyone can cut such a beautiful hand cut dovetail joint in 3 minutes is beyond my skills but I learned to cut a very respectable joint in just over 10 minutes. I seriously doubt I could ever challenge Rob but at least it would be fun trying. Here is a link to his site which has a sample of the video on it. http://robcosman.com/dvdtech.php

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.

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…
