Christopher, just do a search for "TV Stand", etc. in the Projects section.  You'll probably find many cool designed projects that our community has created.  That's kinda what I did!

Anyways, welcome!

Hello everyone.  I am Chris from Flagstaff, AZ.  Currently I run a custom Bed making business on the side but would like to see that grow and maybe expand into other furniture and wood products.  I am new to the Kreg system but so far I am really excited to get started using my new tools.  I have been looking at project photos.  Y'all make some really nice stuff and everyone posts such positive comments for each other which might be what I like best.  I feel that I am joining a very warm and welcoming community of woodworking sisters and brothers.  I can't wait to get started.  My first project will be a corner tv stand so if anyone has a good set of plans to get me started, I would certainly appreciate it.  Keep up the great mutual support and I plan to be on the forum as often as possible.  Thanks for having me!

Hey Chris,

I'm interested in how you got your bed business started.  I love making custom furniture, and have sold some things, especially around Christmas.  But I'd like to do more.  How do you get most of your business? 

Thanks!

Hello, My name is Larry Tramel and I live in SC.  I used to do carpentry work when I lived in KY 13 years ago.  When I am working with wood I have no stress and I love the joy that I give to those who my creations are given too.  I am not an expert in wood working and am full of questions for those that have the years under their belts.  I am looking forward to many new creations in the future and I will share photos for all too see.

Hi Becky.  My primary source of advertising is on Craigslist.  My hope is to slowly build the business until I can garner enough orders to hopefully pursue the work fulltime.  I rely on word of mouth from my existing customers as well.  I love to build Murphy Beds so at this time I am also going around to the mattress stores and talking with the owners.  Since I make beds that need mattresses, maybe they can refer people to me.

That's exactly what I've been doing...Craigslist and word-of-mouth.  I'm hoping people will spread the word.  I just finished a TV cabinet for someone, and am now doing a secretary-type desk for another person.  I use my Kreg jig for pretty much everything.

Hi, my name is Glen and I am a licenced taxi owner. now in my sixties I have taken up woodworking. a few weeks ago I (for some strange reason) built a table from old pallets which apart from a few screws and some glue, cost nothing to make. I was so delighted with it that I now have it in my shed as a workbench. Trawling the internet for other ideas, I came across the KJ4 and thought "Boy this is the tool for me" and decided to buy one. My timing was a little off, if I had waited just another couple of weeks I could have been the proud owner of the K5...hey ho, that's life! Since buying my jig I have made 2 little stools, one for fun and the other for the kitchen to help reach those high cupboard shelves. I made it with little legs so that it could slip under the cooker and be out of harms way, but it still adds 5 inches to my reach.

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…
