Hello, My name is Gary and I live in East TX. I have been doing woodwork off and on over the years and have decided it is time to get back into it. I have not done much pocket hole joinery, always found it to difficult. Only recently purchased the Kreg Jig and ready to get started with it.
My name is Dustin and I live in NE IA. I've been in the sawmill industry for quite some time now as a lumber inspector. I've always had an interest in wood working and with having all the lumber available to me, I thought it would be a great time to get started. I'm a green horn to things when it comes to wood working so I look forward to meeting others with experience and adding some information to my memory bank.
My wood working skills are up and down and right they are down as I have not had the time to do any in almost 10 years. It is a great way to pass the time and you have something that you made with your own hands when your done. I'm looking forward to learning more about the Kreg Jig and on improving my basic skills.
My name is David, I live in Crowley. Today's my birthday, and my wife had to go to Houston. Guess what I bought myself for my birthday? A kreg master system. Teach her to leave me oin my birthday! I fancy myself a woodworker but am constantly looking for easier ways to make joints. I've tried dowels, biscuits, and am excited to try the kreg system. My gransdon is at the door with lunch. I guess grandma called and told him to go take care of Pops. Looking foward to allo the expertisew here...
Hi my name is Pete and I have worked off and on in both Leather crafts and Woodworking, I have recently complete three chairs for the church and found that the pocket joints really work wonders. I have a small shop setup in the garage and hvae built and remodeled the bathroom using a KREG Mini. Someday I will graduate to one of the other models. I aready have found and read many good ideas and new ways to use the tools we have. I also have got into the more exotic woods, we have a wood shop with all the woods you could think of.
I'm in the process of getting my shop set up. Over the years it has become a storage area and some where under all the stuff are my tools. Funny how it seems things in storage multiple and take over on their own.
Tony Here. I'm from north of the 49th paralell, place called Port Hope, Ontario. I am rather heavily into sailing and own a 29 footer of which I am going to redo the interior. As always, I am continually looking for improved methods to complete tasks of this nature and came across the Kreg joinery system and then to this community. I really enjoy viewing the projects the community has created. Some of them are really impressive. It is a good way to share projects and ideas and so have placed a few of my own to view. As you can see, my wife and I together have started to become better at storage solutions and hopefully this will translate to solve some of the small space storage problems that populate marine vessels. Forums like these are a huge resourse and look forward your comments and views.......
Hi Yall, My name is Len. I live in Central Illinois, and have a small shop. I mainly make custom yard signs but occasionally do other project. I have worked in lumbar yards, saw mills and in wood shops, now I'm pretty much retired and work for the enjoyment of it.

I originally bought Ridgid tools for the warranty, well I had to replace batteries. Very easy and got new batteries and chargers. Found out they don't make 24 volt tools any more, so I sent in a hammer drill, impact driver and light for replacement…Continue

Perhaps this question has already been asked somewhere on this forum but I wasnt able to find it after an hour or so of searching. Is there a recommended length of Kreg screw to use when combining a 1x6 into a 4x4 post. I have seen a few conversion…Continue
I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
