Jeff from Columbus, Ohio.  I've used the Kreg jig for about four years on various projects (face frames, built-ins etc)  The Kreg sure beats mortise/Tenon and plain butt joints for my purposes.

Omg!! I just got an email my Kreg is in he way!! Getting nervous now ... If its not as easy as the infomercial, I am going to b n a tight spot. Just bought a home his past Zfriday and I need a ton of storage n can't afford to buy!!

Hi there, My name is Evelinda I am from Mission, Texas deep south by the mexican border. I have been a working with wood much as a hobby, I occasionally sell some of my things.  I love to smell the just cut sawdust kinda like a fresh cut yard.   I saw an infomercial on tv that caught my attention and researched it and purchased the kreg master kit. Could not wait to use it, I have some Modena Pigeons and their coop needed some changes including doors and some panels to separate the pen area and the kreg jig did what the commercial said it would.  Could not be happier with the product.  Did not even know about this site until now and am not surprised on how people sing the praises of this cool jig. So I decided if I was to find new ways to use it I need to find people that  feel the same way.

سلام من مدتی هست که با سایت و ابزار شما اشنا شدم بسیار جالب هست ولی در کشور من محصولات شما وجود نداره
من برای خودم یه نمونه چوبی را درست کردم وامتحان کردم و جواب داد
i I met many interesting sites and tools with you, but your product does not exist in my country
I just got myself a sample of the wood, and I answered Vamthan

Hello group. I'm Larry the cornhole gameboard guy....FACEBOOK page is the same name.

Website pending 'www.larrythecornholeboardguy.com

Started making coenhole game boars last May.....now have over 400 holes ( 6 inches)

what do I do with them?

 

Respectfully,

What, exactly, is a coenhole game boars? For that matter, what is a cornhole gameboard? I have never heard of either.

Hello Jim,

The same perplexing question was on my mind also. 

So not wanting to be too ignorant of USA customs, I decided to look it up on the internet, as this was not the first time members displayed their work, and this my idle curiosity got to me.

So,

its a game where you try to throw a bean bag through the hole you see in the boards, not sure how much of a following it has but there you go.

Must be something of a cult as there are many corn hole  pictures displayed.

Regards

Robert Brennan

P.S. Something to check out amoungst the many varied works displayed !!

To Robert and Jim,

When I was a kid growing up it was called a bean bag game and we used to play it a lot at birthday parties. Each of the holes had different point values, and the kid who had the most points at the end of a certain time period would win a prize.

I don't think the discussion about the game itself was the intent but the skills in making the game boards which does takes some woodworking skills. 

Thank you, Roger

Good point!

Have a great day!

Jim, The cornhole gameboards I make useing a kreg jig do not have multiple holes for different points nor is it used in a "timed" game so I speak of a different WOODWORKING  PROJECT  than Michael is speaking of. Googling an item often enlightens ones' intelligent level in relation to a place, time or item.  My suggestion to you would be to google " history o the cornhole game"  I don't understand your phrase "heading back toward a positie exchange...." if you are interested in my experience useing the kreg jig in woodworking please let me know. I have had over 50 years experience.

Possibly my post was not understood. Not being from the Midwest or East, I am unaware of any adult game where bean bags are thrown at ANYTHING. Googling a particular subject neither changes my personal experiences, nor makes it an adult pastime. As Michael Moldenhauer said, in an earlier post, "When I was a kid growing up it was called a bean bag game and we used to play it a lot at birthday parties. Each of the holes had different point values, and the kid who had the most points at the end of a certain time period would win a prize."

This, too, is my experience with bean bag toss.

If it is, in deed, a "drinking game", as one suggested, it would not be the first time human behavior was influenced by alcohol.

  I am amazed at the responses about an apparently modified beanbag toss (A child's game and carnival attraction) on a woodworker's support page.

How about heading back toward a positive exchange of woodworking ideas, and jig applications (The adult thing to do)

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

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…
