Hey everyone my name I Mike and I live in San Pedro, Ca. and I am new to woodworking. I have all ways had other people or helped them fix or build things around my home. Well the kids are out in college and so I decided to clean out garage and start my journey. Not completely finished yet but very close to main project. So I got my Kreg jig and ready for it to help me with my first major job a mobile workbench. Look forward to see what the future brings.
Your shop sounds at the very least roomy. I am putting together my shop now and it is the same size except only one story. The previous owner of the shop used it for his race cars. There are two big doors on the side. I am planning on building a finishing room around one of the doors. I need more of a controlled environment than what I have for varnishing and such. But I really related to the tools. MY better half makes sure I have toys and projects to stay out of her hair! LOL

HI, My name is Mark. I've been doing woodworking and carving off and on for 30+ years. I've read about the Kreg Jig system many times and finally decided to give it a try building cabinets for a garage renovation I'm doing in the spring. Picked up the master set just last week and looking forward to using it.

I've always wanted to get into wood working. Have done a few projects over the years. This year I've started doing some projects for hire. I built a window seat for an after school mentoring project here in Springfield, IL. called the Matthews Project. I provided the labor for free. The Matthew's Project is in a building that's just a couple of blocks from Lincoln's Home. The building was a grocery store where the Lincoln's purchased their food and stuff.
Since building the window seat for the Matthew's Project I've had several people who have seen it and have asked me to build them a window seat.
Right now I'm in the middle of a large project for a family. It's 4 window seats that will also double as a toy boxes. It will be over 29 ft in length when finished. Should be finished in the next couple of weeks.
