This project was built with treated 2x4s and 1x4s.  I ripped the 1x4s down to 3" because I liked the look.  I did use the blue kote screws and glue on all joints.  Because I couldn't find 1 1/4" blue kote screws, I used deck screws on the back.  For the back rails, I used 1" decking and 3/4" pickets to give it depth.  The joints came out strong, but gluing never hurts.  If I had the HD jig I would have felt better about the overall project.  The wood is soft and when wet, like it was, it is easy to overdrive the screws.

Like the matching bench great place to set the beer and burger or just your feet. Did You use any glue and normal screws or blue cote?

Thanks Jeff

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…
