Hi Bill and welcome to the forum. I am almost finished with my main kitchn cabinets and have decided to add some about the dimensions you just listed. I would love to see some pictures of them if you have any.
Thanks,

Hi my name is Bill, and I live in Riverview, FL, just outside of Tampa. I have my shop in my 3 car garage and have just started to get involved in woodworking now that I am retired.

I am a beginning woodworker and made 3 36"x42"x16" cabinets with raised panel doors for my first project using the Kreg jig system I purchased and it went together extremely quick.

I want to make some cherry cabinets for my home and enjoyed the cherry book case shown on site.
A short resume of my history is my age is 78 .I was born in London U.K.,within the sound of Bow Bells, which makes me a true Cockney. My work was primarily international trading,although I studied electical engineering. My job took me to many parts of the world but,unfortunately,never the U.S.A.,where I have many relatives.During my lifetime I have enjoyed numerous hobies but the most recent is woodwork.I suppose I can thank Norm Abrams of New Yankee Workshop for that,as that programme showed me the mechanical side of woodwork.Needless to say I am a beginer but I do enjoy making furniture. I have made a round dining table and several display cabinets,in which I can show numerous cut glass decanters and glasses which I bought during my travels.As I do not have a modern camera (which I would find too complex) I cannnot provide pictures of any of my woodwork.My next project is design and make a garage with a large attached workshop.
Hi Ralph and welcome to the forum! I bet you would be amazed at how easy some of the modern cameras are to use. Point and shoot and hook one end into a computer and another end of the cable into the camera. Mine I only have to take the memory card out and plug it in. Technology is amazing!

I've got the master system, the clamps, the screws, the wife pushing for proof of payoff of the investment....now I need plans. I'm new to Kreg and love that I found this forum. I live in Eastern Oregon, work as a contractor, manage a hardware and lumber store, and love to work with wood. I'm hoping to find some plans for bunk beds. So if anyone has some cool plans let me know.

Thanks
Bob
Hello,
I am Jim and I am introducing myself to everyone. I have been into wood working since my high school days. My current occupation allowed my to take wood working classes and I did so for about 7 yrs. I then ventured into business about a 1 1/2 yrs ago. I also chronicle some of my wood working journeys on hucksdiy.com, I am hoping that one person gets something useful out of these.
Hi Jim and welcome to the forum. I will try and take some time to check out your stuff at hucksdiy.

Hello, My name is Joe and I live in Northern Minnesota. I remember the 7th Grade and how I loved Woodshop. The love of woodworking has continued on to this Day, I'm 49 now. I have been the owner of a kreg jig for quite a few years now, starting with the rocket then moving to the k-2000 and most recently purchasing the K3 master system. By the way I have the k-2000 for sale on ebay if anyone is interested. I'm looking forward to seeing all the projects and information on this site.
Hi Joe and welcome to the forum! When I was in 7th grade, they wouldn't let girls take shop so I have to take boring home ec. I already knew how to cook and sew any my teacher and I just butted heads because I didn't want to do things her way but the way I alredy knew! I still cook everyday and sew when I can, but wood is my first passion!

I just completed a small (3') cedar fence project with my fairly new Kreg Pocket Hole tool.

It turned out very nice, very solid, I used no hammer, no nails...screws throughout the entire project. The only thing I had to cut were the posts!

Attached are a few pic's in the attached PDF.

Hi Brad and welcome to the forum! If you look to the right of these posts, you will see a section called FREE project plans. You might find something in there that you are looking for.

My name is Henry Gould (Hank) and I am also new to this pocket jig joinery to and I would like help on building kitchen cabinets especially building doors. How do you build the raised panels and insert them into the rails and stiles?

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…
