Kreg Owners' Community

Greetings to All. Jody and I have 8 kids total. 5 still at home. We live in a large log home that we built ourselves. The kitchen does have alot of wear and tear. The cabinets are about 10 years old. They are still in pretty good shape. It seems that when the kids open the cabinets they put a lot of downward pressure on the doors. Over time the doors loosen up and come apart. I have repaired some of them before with glue and clamps, but they never hold. Its been quite a while since a got my Kreg Jig, but this was the first time using it for these repairs and it is so strong I don't think I'll have to do it again! Thank God for Kreg! I really enjoy looking at everybodys projects Just my two cents. T

Great project, T Corey! A fantastic way to repair old joints which have become loose or wobbly! For any beginners which may be reading this, the technique T Corey used also works great for wobbly chairs, broken drawers, and more...

New Kreg 720Pro
