Hi, thanks for adding me to your world of woodworking. I live in Quebec Canada and have doing woodworking off and on for the last 30 years. Now that I'm am retired I have lots more time to get back into woodworking. I just purchased the Kreg 4 master jig yesterday and already have it up and running. I have a kitchen Island to build for a friend and a small cabinet and once they are built I'll post some pics.
Hi, my name is Rick and I live in Southeastern Wisconsin. I have a custom services business. I build custom items and provide a wide range of repair and maintenance services to residential and commercial customers. Most of my wood working projects use traditional joinery and glue. Recently I was asked to build some custom storage units for basement alcove. I am planning to use pocket screw joinery to construct these storage units and to build out several storage and organization items for my new shop. I felt the Kreg system would lend itself to more modular type designs, quicker assembly and lower cost basis for this type of work.
My concern is how strong of a structure this method will offer and hope to learn proper pocket joinery design and assembly methods that yield high strength.
I own the Kreg K4 Master kit and the micro joinery set.
Guitar stand I recently built for a college student using traditional joinery and a few fasteners to allow for disassembly when moving.
My name is Janice. I live in West Point, Utah (30 mi. north of Salt Lake). I am a college professor and novice woodworker. I am a DIY blogger on my spare time. My favorite tool is the K4 my hubby got me 2 years ago. Since then I've been experimenting with wood building and I am hooked. I look forward to getting to know you all and learning more! I blog at https://sawdustsisters.com
and share tutorials of everything I build. My most popular project are my 2x4 barstools https://sawdustsisters.com/diy-barstool-using-only-2x4s/
Thanks for reading!!
Hello, My name is Ken, I live in Columbus Ohio. I've done a little woodwork over the years, got a Kreg Jig and plan to do more
Hallo, I come from Germany and I hope you can understand my english :). It is not so perfect and I think some grammar is wrong.
So, the Kreg Jig is not very common here in Germany and I saw it on youtube and thought: boah, I have to test it. But that was the first hurdle (?) for me. Wher to buy it. I found some shops and I ordered a R3. But the second hurdle: the screw. For the table I need 2 1/2 ". Oh, inch an German. Metric system and inch. I´m not a friend of inch. So the calculator is my best friend :). And next step: build a workbench with kreg jig:)and hope to get a lot of tips here.
Your english is much better that my german, in spite of the fact I spent 14 months in Bavaria in the sixties working for my Uncle Sam. Enjoyed your country very much!
I'm just now buying some metric tools, but still haven't found a tape measure showing both metric and inches yet.
I used my kreg jig to stick some boards together and was very happy with the results.

Greetings fellow woodworkers;
My name is Bob (with one ooh) and I am from Cadillac, MI which is very close to the 45th parallel in the lower peninsula. I am a retired computer and database administrator who has been building an inventory of quality woodworking tools and using them to build mostly personal belongings. My inventory includes a Hegner scroll saw, Bosch SCMS, Bosch table saw, three Bosch routers, P/C Biscuit Cutter, Delta 13" Planer, 16 speed drill press, and many other assorted power and hand tools along with many custom jigs that I've made. I just purchased the Kreg PRS1040 precision router table to replace a much older one that I had purchased from Eagle America which I found was giving me great difficulty setting up for cutting Lock Miter joints. I am hoping this new table overcomes those difficulties.
My most recent project which I started last December is a Quilt Rack for my wife. This project was interrupted when I accidentally stuck my left index finger in the path of my table saw blade giving new meaning to "Red Oak". I thank the Lord I did not lose any bone.
