Hello, my name is Nathalie and I live in Utah. I try to do wood working as a hobby when time allows which is not much. But I have fun. I just bough a small RV trailer and trying to maximize the use of the space by building drawing under dinette bench and the bed. Finding the Kreg jig online and buying it has saved the day. Now it is time to attach the drawer sliders and it is a challenge to get all lined up.

Hi all. Roger is the name and staying active is the game of amongst other interests woodwork seems to be top of the list. Love my lathe, table saw, band saw and all my other hand tools. You might call me a tool collector but I do use them. I do a lot of handyman work as I am semi retired, live on an island in Queensland Australia called Russell/Canaipa (the indigenous name). I love island life. Small ecosystem on it's own with it's own vibe but we have an ageing community who are unable to do repairs for themselves and thats where I come in. So for a small charge to keep my tool buying habit I do repairs. Some of the oldies say if I ever leave the island they will haunt me once they have passed on so I'm not taking a chance and staying here. Also love photography, fishing my wife and grandchildren. All that keeps me young. Just finished building a deck for a guy who has transported a house over. Next job will be finishing the inside to make it comfortable. I, myself am not so young anymore and am developing the usual aches and pains which disappear once I get started. I used to work for Nature Conservation in Namibia, Africa and hence my love for the bush and solitude. I don't have woodworking friends on the island so there are no get together times and just do what woodworkers do best. Make saw dust. So please excuse me when I sometimes ramble on here. Gets a bit lonely at times.

Love being part of this community and thanks for having me.

Hello everyone I am Bob and live in Oklahoma City. I am a retired Civil service aircraft worker, 33yrs. I have been doing woodworking for 40 yrs. I bought a Kreg jig kit yesterday and can't wait to use it. Don't know what I will build, but looking at your ideas.

I live on an island so material is the biggest issue. I think I'll start with a simple box for the grand children's lego's.

Hi there, my name is Michele and I'm from north east PA. I'm pretty new to wood working but got a Kreg setup recently and got to use it on the legs of a large connect four game board I'm making. I joined a while ago but just decided to post now since I was looking for plans/ideas for things, namely a wooden cooler I'd like to make. I also have a question about my current project so I'll post about that next. 

Hello I'm Buzz from Central TX. My work has been limited to repairs, derby cars and a trophy. I joined because I'm building a bunk bed from scratch using my Kreg Jig and reclaimed wood; I like to peruse different designs to create my own. I retired last year, my family and I love to travel and I love projects.

Hi, I'm Tony.
I live in Sydney, Australia - near Bondi Beach.
I am now retired, but have done a few jobs over the years including 5 years as a cabinet-maker. Also have many years of do-it-yourself and did a complete attic room and fit-out.
I use 99% Triton gear - Work Centre, Router Table with Triton Router, Stands etc plus hand tools of course.
I am keenly waiting for my Kreg Jig to arrive, and looking forward to a new horizon in joinery techniques.

Hello, my name is Ken and I live in South Eastern PA. I have done wood working project on and off (most off the last few years). As a child I use to spend time with my grandfather in his workshop and watch him build things from kitchen cabinetry to furniture by hand. I have always wanted to do large furniture projects but never had the time. Now that I am older and have little more time I have the itch. As a program/project manager I am use to having people do the work for me but now I want to get back into getting my hand dirty.

I have done a couple of project already like the potting station and a few tables. I am currently designing a desk / selfing unit fr my daughter's room.

Using the Kreg tools have really improved my accuracy and shorten my time.
