Hello, My name is Gary and I live in East TX. I have been doing woodwork off and on over the years and have decided it is time to get back into it. I have not done much pocket hole joinery, always found it to difficult. Only recently purchased the Kreg Jig and ready to get started with it.
My name is Dustin and I live in NE IA. I've been in the sawmill industry for quite some time now as a lumber inspector. I've always had an interest in wood working and with having all the lumber available to me, I thought it would be a great time to get started. I'm a green horn to things when it comes to wood working so I look forward to meeting others with experience and adding some information to my memory bank.
Hi Justin,
My wood working skills are up and down and right they are down as I have not had the time to do any in almost 10 years. It is a great way to pass the time and you have something that you made with your own hands when your done. I'm looking forward to learning more about the Kreg Jig and on improving my basic skills.
Thanks James,
I look forward to meeting and learning from you all.

Hiya Gary and Welcome to the Community!

Well, you couldn't have picked a better place to get started. Plenty of info to help you learn how to use your new Kreg Jig and plenty of help to keep you on the right track.
Hello:
My name is David, I live in Crowley. Today's my birthday, and my wife had to go to Houston. Guess what I bought myself for my birthday? A kreg master system. Teach her to leave me oin my birthday! I fancy myself a woodworker but am constantly looking for easier ways to make joints. I've tried dowels, biscuits, and am excited to try the kreg system. My gransdon is at the door with lunch. I guess grandma called and told him to go take care of Pops. Looking foward to allo the expertisew here...

Hi my name is Pete and I have worked off and on in both Leather crafts and Woodworking, I have recently complete three chairs for the church and found that the pocket joints really work wonders. I have a small shop setup in the garage and hvae built and remodeled the bathroom using a KREG Mini. Someday I will graduate to one of the other models. I aready have found and read many good ideas and new ways to use the tools we have. I also have got into the more exotic woods, we have a wood shop with all the woods you could think of.
Thanks for the Welcome James and Gary!

Welcome Pete and David!
Thanks James
I'm in the process of getting my shop set up. Over the years it has become a storage area and some where under all the stuff are my tools. Funny how it seems things in storage multiple and take over on their own.

Have a Great Day
Hi:
Tony Here. I'm from north of the 49th paralell, place called Port Hope, Ontario. I am rather heavily into sailing and own a 29 footer of which I am going to redo the interior. As always, I am continually looking for improved methods to complete tasks of this nature and came across the Kreg joinery system and then to this community. I really enjoy viewing the projects the community has created. Some of them are really impressive. It is a good way to share projects and ideas and so have placed a few of my own to view. As you can see, my wife and I together have started to become better at storage solutions and hopefully this will translate to solve some of the small space storage problems that populate marine vessels. Forums like these are a huge resourse and look forward your comments and views.......

New to K5 and pocket holes, any video’s on the materials listed below?

I am using Danny Proulx book on shop workstations. I am deciding whether to use MDF or Melamine. He calls for MDF. However; I like the looks of the melamine.  I am a little leery of using pocket holes for it. One of the main reasons is I have no…Continue
