New Jersey resident. Recently bought a Kreg bandsaw fence for Porter Cable saw, but haven't installed it yet.

Hoping to pick up tips from people here, so I can continue 'playing' with wood.

Hi,

I'm Josh, I have done a little bit of woodworking in the past but not to much.  Its something I enjoy but don't get to do very often.  Currently its just my wife and I in Stockton California but we are trying to adopt as well as get out of Stockton, I am from Northern California and she is from Italy.(Yes, Eharmony really does work!)

The only "fine furniture" type project I have done is a flag and medal case I did as a wedding present to my wife, she had never even received her father's burial flag.  She was in tears when I gave it to her.  Anyhow now I am working on a desk hence why I bought the kreg pockethole jr jig

Nowdays adoption works very much by word of mouth so any helps appreciated

Hi my name is Harry and I live in Jay Florida, about 40 miles East of Pensacola. I like working with pallets, black pipe and am excited to learn how to use the Kreg Jig. I got the Kreg K4 Jig, 3" Face Clamp and Screw Kit for Christmas. I have added a Right Angle Clamp, and a bundle that includes the Kitchen Accessories and Crown Molding Jig.  I am ready to start something with all of these great tools but I think first on he project list is a workbench that will accommodate the Kreg Jig and Clamp Track. 

Hello, My name is Anthony Tosi. I live in New Jersey. I am wondering if the Kreg Jig would work on joining the pre made pine crates that Home Depot Sells. They will be used to support a 3/4" piece of either Oak or the finished Pine Board, But How I am securing the crates is one is going to be long ways and the one on top is going to be standing up, Would the Kreg Jig work for my purpose? 

Michael here from Georgia and learning woodworking. Just bought and got my Kreg Foreman to make pocket holes.

That is a beautiful flag case. Good work,

The flag case is very beautiful. Great work,

HI my name is Graham and I am based in the UK.  I have come at the Kreg Tool from the other end - I am designing a TV surround and floating shelves in Sketchup and came across a recommendation for Kreg Tool within one of the Pintrest ideas.  So now incorporating Tim's pockets into my design and just deciding on whether to go for the 3 or 4.  I love a bit of woodwork, but the time saving aspect of this tooling really appeals...

Hello everyone, my name is Mark and I live in Sioux City, IA.  I have always been a DIYer but recently decided to try woodworking.  I renovated a room in my house and turned it into a small shop.  I recently removed a wood fireplace and old volcanic stone wall and updated it to an electric fireplace and Airstone wall with 55" tv.  I am now using my new shop to build a couple of built in cabinets.  I am doing a lot of reading and video watching so I know exactly what I will run into.  I have built the carcasses and now moving on to the face frames.  I usually don't know what I am doing when I start a project but come away with a ton of knowledge for the next time! 

Pics of fireplace and shop....

Hello Mark,

Looks like the beginings of some very rewarding work going to happen there.

A picture would be good to make a objective jusgement for you otherwise try one and see for yourself, as I am reasonable sure 1t would be OK
