hi im JOBY   this is my first time with pocket joinery  I like the Kreg system a lot and have been  busy making a desk  I mope to learn a lot in these forums  Thanx  JONY

Hello,

My name is Mike and I live in PA. I am a woodworker/cabinetmaker by trade, have been since high school woodshop. Currently work in a custom woodworking shop. I have always done traditional woodworking joints, mortise and tenon, dodo, rabbet, spline, and when called for dowel, screw, biscuit and such. I haven't used pocket-hole joints much. Recently purchased Kreg Jig K5. Looking forward to pocket-hole joints made easy with the K5. Joined community to stay informed and offer some input. 

Welcome Mike !!

Hi my name is Jim. I live in the Great State of Maine. I consider myself a starter wood worker, even though I have been doing odds and ends for 40 years. At this point in my life I am a Real Estate Broker. I did a pocket joinery project about 3 years ago that came out pretty well. It amazes my the projects you can do with the Kreg tool. Just looking for projects that can make life easy.

Hi, my name is Kimbra, my husband Randy and I found this site while planning for building a woodshop this spring.   There are plenty of fix it jobs waiting for us to tackle after the shop is built, we are putting up a 30 by 40 metal building that will be insulated and finished inside.    We have the option of adding a loft area with stairs and would like a bathroom/ kitchenette on one end.

We live in SE Kansas on a farm/ranch where we raise cattle, crops and hay. I have taken a few woodworking classes and like to build projects that I can use or diy home improvement for us or our grown up kids.

Does anyone have any great advice for us before we dig the concrete foundation?  Anything you would do before building a woodshop?  We appreciate your response and sharing your ideas.

Hello, My name is Shawn and I live in Florida. I usually don't work with wood, as I am a welder/Fabricator by trade. I always am up to learn new things especially when it can save me money in the end. I usually do most everything myself and it always seems to work out for me, I'm not a know it all , I just  do my research before jumping into things. So don't be surprised if I try to pick your brain . 

I am looking for the plans to build the table for Big Green Egg. How do I get them?

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…

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…
