Train coming around the corner where the school and daycare playground is. I will attach a link to see more photos and to see how the village was built with the Kreg jig. There is also a video. I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks so much Rita! I appreciate the nice comments.  It is hard work!  People that have not done this don't know how much is involved in putting it up!  I am very happy with my platforms that I built.  I looked on the internet and couldn't find anything to fit my needs so that is why I decided to build it!  This was my first project and it gave me the confidence to build all of the other projects that I have done!

Great Job Lorrie!!!  I use to do the village too, many years ago, so I know exactly how much time and planning goes into it.   Fun to watch it come to life and you have out done yourself in the display.   I bet it just glows at night.   Enjoy your hard work with many friends and family and may each of you be blessed this holiday season and beyond!

Thanks Jim!  I have been collecting these dept. 56 houses for over 25 years.  I stopped about 10 years ago or so.  I had so many of them and they are not easy to store!  I enjoy putting together the village differently every year.  I used to have an open house and invite my friends to come see the village.  I would bake cookies and they could come and go as they needed around Christmas.  I used to put the village on the floor around the Christmas Tree with the train but as I get older, it is harder and harder to put up each year!  I thought the platforms would make it easier for me to create the village.  Thanks so much for the nice comment. :)

Adaptive Cutting System/Saw Blade

I have had the ACS for about a year.  Was wondering if there any other blades, like a Diablo, that will fit the saw?Continue

AutoMaxx 6" clamp not working

I have been using the Automaxx 6" clamp for two plus years, and recently the clamp is impossible to close the handles to secure the work and my jig. I cannot close the handles no matter how much pressure I can exert. I open the clamp to max to reset…Continue

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…
