Hello all my name is Phil. I live in Maryland, love music and want to build custom storage for my music - apothecary drawer cabinet for CD's and custom storage for music books and sheet music. But I am a complete newbie to woodworking so to start I want to use my K4 system to repair and strengthen existing bookcases and storage.

Hi my name is Elizabeth and I live in Georgia. I am retired and find myself doing DIY projects with my time.  I recently installed laminate flooring and new baseboard molding in my kitchen (first time). I actually love working with wood. I am interest in making a sturdy desk for my home office. I just purchased Kreg Jig 5 Master System and accu-cut.  Wish me luck.  

Hello from Houston!  My name is Tom -- my wife and I have been transplanted Iowans here in TX for the past 14 years.  I grew up on a farm in Southeast Iowa where I spent many wintery days in my dad’s woodshop learning the craft from him.  After getting married and raising a family, the woodworking bug has bitten me once again.  I’ve been intrigued with the expanding Kreg system and I am pleased to say I am hooked!  Just completed my first shelving project and have a ton of other ideas brewing – thanks to my wife of course!  Glad to be a part of the community.

Hi my name is Alec I'm in the UK been wood working most of my life I've just bought a kreg master system but not used it yet so will have loads of questions
Hello my name is Ruben I live in S.A Texas I am an electrician by trade but around 2 years ago I built my first shelves for my son's toys and something just triggered and I have not stopped making things ever since. What I enjoy most is surprising friends and family with homemade gifts. The easy of making joints with Kreg gave me the confidence to keep building. I look foward to being part of the Kreg community.

Hi, my name is Christopher I live in Wisconsin (go packers). Used to do carpentry projects years ago and would like to get into it again. Kreg tools looks to make some of the things I struggled with much easier so here I am going to buy my jig and do some test pieces then look for a design to build. 

Thanks

Hi, my name is Vassie and I live in Campobello, SC. I'm retired so that gives me more time for all my hobbies. I've always enjoyed making things with wood and a few years back I got into building guitars. I had to make all the jigs and a wood bender and fabricate all the parts of the guitar. My basement is my shop. There's nothing more relaxing than the smell of fresh saw dust in the morning.

Hi Everyone,

My name is Don, I'm in Central Illinois and I have no experience in building with wood.  I guess I'm a wood builder wanna be.  However, I am interested in learning and trying some things out.  In the process of making a dinner table to accommodate quite a few people who gather at my wife and my home.  I'll return and post a photo or two when I'm done.  

I joined this community to have a place I can read, learn, and ask questions.  I've purchased a quite a few Kreg tools and got some ideas of a few projects I'd like to try.

Don,

Check out your local nearby home centers.

Some have a selection of books that you can look thru, to see if there's anything that you can build, at your skill level.

Also, check out your local library.

Hello my name is Matt Chapman. I am a young Army Veteran from Missouri. I specialize in hobby woodworking to supplement my income. Cutting boards, tables, boxes, rustic flags etc. I'm currently working on revamping my shop and adding much needed functionality amongst the chaos that is my two car garage shop. I'm looking forward to hearing from all of you and learning about all the new projects that come about.

Hey guys,

Been using my Rocket jig for at least 10 years. Read about it in a magazine and the local Home Hardware ordered it in and it was their first time seeing the product.

Used it for many projects for many thicknesses of mat'l. Always worked perfectly and it is still in good shape. 

My favourite use is for joining boards on edge for a tabletop. Much faster and seems to be just as good as dowels or biscuits.

Have a son in law now who wants some help with a small hall table so we'll be using the pocket hole jig to put that together.

Really like the Accut (spelling?) with the 2" SM foam base for cutting sheets. My table saw set-up does not work well for big sheets. I'm in a wheelchair so my hands can't handle the sheet and move my chair as required. Thinking the system with the circular saw and the rail will make for much easier and more accurate cuts.... 

tx, Ed
