Hello, My name is Robert (Bob). I live in central Ohio. I've worked with wood for most of my life. I got to start playing with a bandsaw at about 9 years old and got help from my dad for little projects. I started carpentering when I was 15. When my carpentry days ended and I started working in a factory, I started trying to build furniture at home. I have been building furniture and what-nots now for about 26 years. I was my own builder for my home. I built all the cabinetry. I used the Kreg jig for all the Cabinet face frames in the house.

Quite some time ago, while watching the Kreg demo, a man at the wood show told me,"after his table saw, his Kreg Jig was the 2nd most used tool in his shop". That settled it, I bought one and have loved it ever since. When talking tools with people I usually tell them, " you buy a cheap tool,  you get a cheap tool". That is not the case with my Kreg Jig, for a little money you get a tool that will pay for itself 100 times over.

Hello Everyone!

My name is Tracy and I'm a 35 year old full time mother and caregiver to my disabled husband in NE Oregon!

My husband and I got started with woodworking/furniture building a little over a year ago.  I watched a Kreg Jig infomercial and loved how idiot proof it seemed to be so we got one!  It was an instant hit here at home!  We now build furniture for a living, building for ourselves and for our friends and LOVE Kreg products.  We have the pocket hole jig, the drawer slide jig (both parts) and I personally am looking forward to the release of the Rip Cut!!!  Can't wait for that baby!  

We are members of Ana-White.com (love that very innovative lady!), Handyman Club and love all things wood!

   Hey there my name is Guy Bratt  I'm a retired electrician living in Michigan just southwest of Port Huron.    My wood working experiance was related to construction untill 2007.  About then I got caught in the woodturning  vortex.  Now I'd like to extend my skills a little and build some cabinets and such.  My first Kreg purchase will likly be the portable router table followed by a pocket hole system.

Welcome Guy! I think you will like the kreg system it is a great alternative to more  time consuming joinery and it works well.

Hello Guy, You will find this to be a nice venue when you want information or have a question.

Good luck.

Hi my name is George Adair. I've been wielding a hammer since I was about 8 years old. That works out to about 50 years of banging my nails instead of the ones I was supposed to be driving in. Took up woodworking more as a nessesity because I just couldn't afford a carpenter and wanted to put what my father taught me to some use. I consider myself a knowledgeable woodworker which means I still have a heck of a lot more to learn. I'm now getting involved in building gifts for family and multiple grandchildren. Kreg tools has been a great help in improving some of the projects I've taken on.

Hi all,

My name is Justin (from Ohio).  New to wood working, but have been helping friends and family remodel for years.  Just bought my first home and am enjoying planning my own remodels.  I'm eager to get started and learn from everyone here.  Already have my first project; a headboard made from old shutters.  Pictures to come!

I've been using my Adaptive Cutting System table for a few years now, and it's been really solid. This past week was the first time I ever needed to use the miter guide though.I was rebuilding some shelving in a tiny closet and I discovered the…Continue

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…
