Dennis M here. 

New Guy to the pocket hole joinery world.  Just bought the J3 pack to get my feet wet.  Am currently building a coffee table out of Sapele wood. Beautiful wood and I sure as heck dont want to screw up and have to redo something.  Will be asking fng (funny new guy) questions and asking for pointers.  Appreciate any help or vectors to videos I should should check out.

Thanks in advance!

I'm just an old old old man who has got caught up in the wood putting together bug.  I like making toys and have been able to really sell two of my creations.  I also like to build outdoor items for the patio an garden.

I live in south east Texas north of Houston and am retired.  I have a wife and no children.  I have just about all I need in my shop, even though I wish it was twice the size, as it is kinda cramped.  

I have increased from my first shop to a 10' x 20' garage.  I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for all I have.

thank you Ed

Hi Folks!  My name id Bill Heim and I'm from the Appalachian area of southwest Virginia.  I consider myself a novice woodworker and look forward to getting ideas from all y'all...

Here's my first project using Kreg pocket screws:

Nice looking glider.  I also like the Clean Basement and I am sure that woodworking will fill it nicely with machines and benches.  Good luck with your next project.

try YouTube and go to WWMM VERY GOOD NFO

Thanks, Keith.  My bride and I just completed construction on our retirement nest and she was kind enough to let me use the 2000 sq. ft. basement for a shop.  I have to hurry up and fill it with tools before she changes her mind!

Hi my name is Mark and I live in NW Florida, bought the Kreg k4

My name is Paul Howard, I live in Arkansas I'm retired from Kraft Foods. I started woodworking about one year ago. I joined the kreg group to learn more about the craft and I also like Kreg products, and own and use them in my shop.

Hello,

My name is Herb and I live in Madison Wisconsin.  I taught high school wood shop for 20 years and I still have all my fingers.  I've built my own house and many personal projects during that time.  I've always enjoyed using the Kreg jigs but have never owned one of my own.  I look forward to learning from this community and continuing to use my new Kreg.

On a side note, I'm also into motorcycling, aviation, and watching the Green Bay Packers.
