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. :)

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…

Kreg Jig Dust Collection Attachment

1st impression when you hold this attachment in your hand:  "not much to it", Kreg sure is makin' $$ here.

Then I installed it.. perfect fit, leaves just enough room to adjust the setting screw on my K4.

Then the real test, hook…
