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.
Sorry about your injury! Looks pretty nasty!
You are light years ahead of my skills. I look forward to growing as a woodworker, while keeping my digit inventory at a full 10 and 10.
Your quilt rack looks incredible.
Mr. Moore, your post is humorous. Good for you for getting yourself a birthday gift as good as what you got. Hope you had a good lunch with your grandson. Grandchildren are the best. JDM

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...
