This was my First Kreg Jig Project. I built platforms for My Christmas Village to get it up off the floor. This was a make it up as you go project. I built 4 tables for the platforms and the first one was 4'x8'. I tried to make the others a little smaller!! I did not glue anything so I can take them apart and store away for next year. That is the beauty of the Kreg Jig Joinery! 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!

Thank you so much Claude for your comments.  It was a lot of work and I was just making it up as I went along.  I'm really glad that you enjoyed the video.  Thanks for making a comment on the different size platforms as I really enjoy getting feedback for the work I have done and what you like or don't like about it.  I was really excited to be able to see the train running in the back while being under some of the platforms and I think it gave it an interesting area to watch.  Thanks again for your nice comment!  Glad I could "make your day!"

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the nice comment.  It was a lot of hard work and hours but well worth it in the end. :)  After building the large platforms, I decided to make smaller ones to add height to the village in the back.  All in all, I think it turned out pretty nice.  thanks for taking a look! :)

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…
