Hello Joshua:

Looking at the Adaptive Cutting System to replace my table saw. Always had a table saw and have found it difficult to use from my wheelchair. But I thought it was my only option.

Thought maybe the ACS would be much better and safer. How are you finding it for speed and accuracy?

Looking forward to hearing about your experience.

tx, Ed

Hi, I recently built a 3-tier garage shelving unit for our single car garage. Used the Kreg 320, then Kreg K5 and HD. Liked it so much I bought the Adaptive Cutting System! With limited space to work (1 car garage), the storage feature is great. Looking forward to many future projects!

Good day everyone,

I’m Sean, from Maine. I have hobbied in woodworking for most of my life. Typical home owner stuff. Really like the ease of Kreg tools. Have made a table with a secret drawer and most recently a buffet for the dining room. Photos to come. I’m really liking the inspiration. 
I look forward to learning some tricks for here.

Thanks.

Hi

Shawn from Cape Town South Africa.

Total novice.

Hello, My name is Yee Meng Chong. I am a new student with no experience from Elmhurst, N.Y. trying to kill my evening time on exercise and learning some things on building in wood. Purchased the Kreg Jig set over year and half which i had no time learning. Now needs to stay home and ready to work on my New Kreg Jig set.

Thank you

Hi all.

My name is Craig and I'm from Wigan/Manchester, England.

I've been playing around with woodwork for a few years and I bought myself a Rip-Cut, a K5MS and a plug cutter a couple of years back.

After making some "smaller" items (up to and including a 3' x 2' tool cabinet for the garage),I decided to build my own oak stairs and understair storage cupboard.

I recently bought a few more Kreg jigs, to build a complete set of wardrobes for my daughter's bedroom.

So now I have the Micro pocket hole + plug-cutter, the Drawer-Slide jig, the cabinet hardware jig and the concealed hinge jig.

I'm having so much fun making stuff (My "real" life revolves around IT).

I'm hoping to improve my knowledge and get tips from people with a lot more experience (both with Kreg and woodwork in general) than myself.

Regards

Craig

Good morning to all! My name is John and I reside in Southwest Louisiana, where snow is rare and the mosquito is also known as the other state bird. I've been a hobbyist woodworker for 30 plus years and owe my passion for it to genetics and Norm Abrams. I just began using the Kreg pocket hole system last year, and have been quite impressed with the ease and strength it provides. My first major project using Kreg joinery was an adaptation of a miter saw station that I saw on the web.

Hi John,

 As an LSU grad, I can attest to the mosquito.  Four can carry away a small dog. Welcome to the group.

I'm making new shop cabinets using pocket holes to make the drawers and the cabinet frames.  Saves time and is strong.

Hello my name is Duane. I purchased a K4 jig back in 2017 and haven't really used it much but am planning on using it in the future mostly just for small projects to start with. I'm going to make a custom storage case for it. I am hoping to make backyard lighthouses and wishing wells for a hobby in the future whenever I retire.

Hello everyone, my name is Joe Pearson, Jr and I currently live in Liberty Hill, TX which is in the Austin area. I am a beginner at woodworking. I just started in Mar 2020. I joined to learn from others and if ever possible to share what I have learned. I will try to upload a few pictures of what I have built using pocket holes from my cell phone. 

Welcome, Joe from south Alabama. I consider myself a beginner, also. If I can be of assistance don't hesitate to contact me. Harold

Hello, I am new to Kreg and a beginner to woodworking. Love building things. This is my new retirement hobby.

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
