That's great maybe I can rack your wisdom when it comes to best places to purchase stuff around town (wood, tools, etc.). I'm such a newby I'm in the collect everything I think I need phase (tools wise).
To start with, what do use for pocket screws, do you only use kreg, or do you have another choice, bout to run out on my first build and will need more.
Hi my name is jerry im just joining the kreg comunity hope to talk to some of you soon and ill be posting some pic of my previous projects
Hello all,
My name is Chris and I live about 60 miles north of New York City. I have only recently started woodworking and so an ad for the Kreg jig and was fascinated. I am close to completing my first project ( a workbench) and hope to post some pictures once completed.

Thanks

Hi, I am Mark Schurman from Bellevue NE.  I started working with wood in the early 90s.  I got interested in scroll saw work mostly.   Due to retirement from the military, a move across country, then a divorce and remarriage I ended up selling most of my equipment and now my new wife wants me to get it started again. Since I wasn't the big furniture builder, I knew nothing about joinery.  I had a nice sized gift card to Lowes and decided to buy the Kreg Jig system and easily built my new work benches for my small garage.  I still need to acquire my scroll saw, but in the mean time, I am finding neat easy projects to build with the jig.

My name is Mickey, I live in central Arkansas. I just married and now have a wife and home needing attention. Starting from zero tools, I've gained a table saw and basic hand/power tools. First project is a work bench. I was given a hard maple laminated top needing legs Planning to use my Kreg Jr with 2x4s

Hello Mickey,

It looks like you now have all the essential tools and support to do just about anything, so lets now see the results !!

Oh and by the way welcome to you and the wife to the Kreg Community, I and we are patiently awaiting the results of you work.

Lots to enjoy here !!! you wont be disappointed!!

Hey Mark,

I sent a welcome previously but it must have been eaten by the dog!!

Any way Welcome, don't be too concerned about life's downturns and the such.

Woodworking is one of the best kept "Mens Secret Business" going, beats just about any professional $ driven help yet.

Enjoy and lets see some more pictures of the nice workbench

Hi, My name is Ann and I just retired from 30 years of government work.  Now, I can finally become a wood worker.  I've done enough over the years to know what not to do, so I'm looking for advice and tips on how to get better.  

First tip, Ann, get a Kreg jig if you dont already have one :)

Hello:
My name is Bryan, I live in Stillwater MN. I just bought the  kreg master system. I am looking forward to learning any thing i can from all of you.

Hi Bryan,

Welcome aboard.

Obtain some scrap and cutoff pieces---
and ''go-to-it''.

Making up several test pieces, 'til you get the hang of it.

Once assembled, the test pieces can be disassembled and recycled.

Most important---

"have fun building".

PS---there's answers to questions, in the forums, you haven't yet asked.

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…
