Hello ,I am Will and I don't have too much experience in woodwork but is willing to learn everything I can about woodworking.

Hi All,

I have just joined this community and am based in Australia. Recently purchased the Kreg K5 and have completed a few projects. I look forward to getting some great ideas from everyone as well as sharing any tips.

Feel free to message if you live in the land down under.

Hello, my name is Martha.  I just made my first thing with my Kreg 3.  It was a book shelf for my son.

Hello All,

 My name is Rick, I live in SC. I am a intermediate wood worker that is new to the Kreg system and community. I am looking forward to learning new tips and project ideas from members here on this site. I just purchased the K 4 master system and several other Kreg clamps that I intend on putting to use real soon on a couple of small projects I have been putting off for a while. I am glad there is a site like this that I can lean how to use this system properly and at the same time admire some of the fantastic work that other members post and display. It really has me motivated to get back in my shop and start building again! 

Hello and welcome Chris

I am in Morningside Brisbane, and there are quite a few other aussies about.

Hi Chris

Welcome but I am also one of the newbies. Live on Russell Island Brisbane Qld and recently bought the box set that was on special. Looks good on my shelf and I even dust it off on occasion as I've yet to make the time to make something. Problem we have is getting timber here across the ditch. Barge costs a lot. Wife is planning some office cupboards so am looking forward to that project. I don't want to see a screw head when I have completed the project. See how I go. Do heaps of restoration for other people but need to find time for myself.

Have fun with your new toy.

Roger.

Hello My name is Mike and I'm from Branford, CT. I just downsized from a house to a condo so my first project with being very new to the Kreg joinery system will be the much needed work space for future projects. I'll use the Kreg system on this to get my feet wet and hopefully come out with a sturdy design that also looks good with all my joints and screw heads hidden. 

Hello, my name is Bill. I've periodically had to learn how to do home repairs and minor carpentry when something falls apart in my house, but never been proactive about building stuff. I am interested in learning as much as possible about how to build things on the cheap! Nice to meet you :)

Hi everyone. My name is Glenn and I live in Vista Ca. I have be working with wood for more that 40 years. The Kreg jig is a wonderful new tool I purchased recently. I look forward to learning from the Kreg Owner's community.   

Hi everyone, I'm Mitch, I am from Warrnambool, Australia. I plan to buy a Kreg K4 jig, I don't have a lot of experience with woodworking but I will never learn if I don't give it a go. I am thinking of starting with some simple storage shelving for the garage and will see how I go from there. Looking online it seems to be cheaper to buy a Kerg jig from Amazon in the US than locally here in Australia. Anyway, here's wishing everyone a great day and thankyou for such a great site full of helpful tips.

Hi,

My name is Jim and I live in the Low Country of South Carolina.  I'm retired and enjoy wood working.  I look forward to learning from y'all .  I have recently purchased the Kreg Rip Cut and the Kreg K4/Kreg Jig.  I just built a 2 drawer drill press stand and it came out beautiful.

Hi Mitch

Roger from Russell Island Qld. Enjoy the journey of sawdust making. You are on the right track. Get the best tools you can afford. You won't be sorry. An hours research (usually my hour turns to 5) will give never ending pleasure. Woodwork is not only putting 2 boards together. It is such a wide field. I do wood turning, carving and plain making something from recycled wood. I use good old cast iron machinery. The best as they are usually very true. Oh, and build a bigger shed. You'l need it in a while so might as well start now.

Regards

Roger
