My building/woodworing history & reason for purchasing the Kreg jig

I was brought up by a father that generally had some home remodeling project going on and, since the chip doesn't fall far from the block followed in his footsteps.

Festool Domino 500

The first thing I will do is set price aside and focus on the tool and why I bought the Domino.
