Multi-level deck and gazebo

This deck was built on a very rocky, unlevel area next to the lake by my cottage. Framed with deck blocks and joists, but I used the Kreg Deck Jig to attach all the decking. Looks great, and I've noticed some of my woodworker friends trying to figure out why there aren't any screw holes!

I used the Protec-Kote screws, which have a Robinson head; the driver bit that comes with the kit.

    did you use the philips head screws or the other one?

Michael; I'm not in the US, I'm in eastern Canada. Here we usually call them 'cabins', but for most of the rest of the country they use the term 'cottage' -- at least for anything that has electricity and running water!

Nice job Derek, looks like a challenging build ?You have cottages in the states thought they were a sight in the English countryside go steady .

No loose screws and no boards popping up, so worked as advertised! I used 5/4 x 6 PT deck boards, with the trusses on 24", and two screws on every truss. I turned the boards so that the grain is pointing down, so I had expected I might see some cupping, but so far so good. The screws seem to hold very well. I was pretty careful when i drilled the holes, and also careful not to over-torque the screws.

impressive indeed !   No loose screws or boards popping up yet?    If not, that would mean the KREG JIG system worked as stated on their website?

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…
