Hello.John here from Belfast in Northern Ireland. Just purchased a Pocket Jig and am enjoying trying out new things. I attend a weekly woodwork class and over the years have tried various projects of varying degrees of difficulty. As I don't have a table saw of my own I usually have to have the basic cutting done for me but I cam manage most other aspects of the craft. It will be good to have access to the expertise of other enthusiasts and, who knows, I might even be able to pass on a tip or two I have picked up along the way myself.

Here's a pic of a little coffee table made from ash which was fun to build.

Hi John , really like your coffee table , great design and finish, well done , thank,s for sharing , JIM !!

Hello John,

If you are actually accomplishing making things as good as that coffee table and don't have a table saw I'd say you can definitely pass along some useful tips! LOL I'm picturing you in your shop that consists of a 2' x 4' Peg board to hang all three of your tools on... a hammer, a chisel and a hacksaw! HAHAHAHA Great job on the table!

Hello, my name is Clark and I am rather new to wood working.  I am a beginner looking to learn some skills and make some neat projects.  I bought the Kreg jig and have used it a couple of times and so far so good.

 

 

Hi My name is Joe and I have been doing woodworking as a hobby for a number of years. I have recently purchased a Kreg jig for a project and walked away pretty impressed. I look forward to interacting with all of you on this forum

I do have a question to ask the forum, has any body used the jig to bond a 45 degree angle to a straight board. I saw the video but that gives an overlap. I am looking for a clean profile at the edge. Comments will be appreciated

I've done very basic DIY style woodwork, but having moved to the bay area from the UK we need some extra furniture for the house, thought I could make a new hobby out of making some "rustic" furniture whilst remodeling the rest of the house, bit by bit. Being a programmer by trade, I'm combining technology with woodworking. Like many others I'm using SketchUp for design and blogging my builds on http://minionmade.blogspot.com, would welcome feedback and advice. 

On the hard to get places, I use a small angle drill and a short bit.

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…
