OKreg! I use to do pocket holes by measuring carefully and then back-drilling from the end in the stock at about 5 to 10 degrees. Of course I didn’t have a pocket shoulder to drill up against unless…Continue

holy moly! that is a lot of work. I see that you had to groove the outside ring and notch the narrow end of the spokes. A little splitting occured huh? I wonder: I assume that you pre-dilled? would the wider end of the spokes be ok with two pocket holes, glue and no groove? Anyway, a great job for a first! how would you modify the design for the next one?

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

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…
