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

Hello:
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...

Thanks for the kind words, Mark.  As bad as that finger looks, it never hurt at all.  All the doctor did was put a bandage on it and told me to come back in a week to have a look at it.  I did get back on that horse to finish that quilt rack and now I am looking for my next project.  Don't be concerned about your expertise.  Your skills will advance as you work with it and read tips and helps from other woodworking veterans.  And speaking of veterans, I sincerely thank you for your service in the Army.  I too am a veteran having served 4 years with the US. Air Force in Germany in the 1960's and leaving as a S/Sgt (E5).

Thank Bob, especially for truly being a Brother in Arms.

I was in for a shade over 10 and left on the list for O4.  After Panama, Granada and DS1, it was time to enjoy a quieter life with my Bride.  I am "up there" in years but if I get busy, I'll have enough experience to take me through my more golden years!  (yes, the profile picture may be a bit dated)

Cheers.

Hello, my name is Joe and am living in Brighton Colorado. I haven't done much wood working yet. But I am learning. Slowly but surely, some mistakes so far but nothing I wasn't able to fix. My background is in aircraft maintenance. Not to much wood on the aircraft I work on. Kreg system was purchased for the wife,she wanted to try it. Has been sitting for about a year and nothing so I thought I would give it a try. Started simple with a table from Ana White plans. Turned out ok, not great but usable. Now building the work bench from the Kreg plans. Found I needed a work bench to build the work bench! Turning out ok. Almost done,ordered the clamp track and clamps, just waiting for delivery to finish.

Good afternoon!

My name is Jon, live in Muncie Indiana, grew up helping my dad do woodworking, and just now got into it again once I got married.  I am hoping to learn more about the pocket jig, everyone I hear talk about it LOVES it, I cant seem to figure it out!  Guess I will post my questions in the question area!

Hi, I'm Barry from Jacksonville Florida. I consider myself an average DIYER, not a woodworker. I recently bought a pocket hole jig to make a shelf for the laundry room. The shelf is going in my shed, but the pocket holes were perfect. Still have to build the shelf.
