"I never us ply wood for an thing I build.  It make of a cheap project.  Although pocket construction is the only way to build.  Make proper adjustments before doing any thing with pocket hole tools."

"Careful of your plywood dimensions.  I only use Russian Birch ply for most of my projects as it is a true 3/4" and my screws don't penetrate..  The plywood manufacturers are getting expert at thin slicing veneers so the new…"

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 construction but I thought I would give it a try because of the reviews that claim it is quicker and sturdier than conventional joinery.  I would disagree for a couple of reasons.First:  I don't feel as if it is quicker at all because it takes considerable time…See More

"I have been eyeing up this router table after I read the review on https://toolinspector.com/best-router-table/ which scored it the best in its price category. Are you still happy with it after having it 4 more months? "

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.
