Thanks for the info, I have also got the shorted Kreg bit and a flexible shaft, so hopefully won't get caught out again.

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

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. 

My name is Colette Bush and I live in Louisiana. I am a 50 year old Nana to 6 grandkids and a beginner woodworher. I found that I love to use a scroll saw. I make things here and there but I need a lot more practice. I'm very excited to join and learn about this product.

Colette,

You can start by reviewing the products Kreg Tools offers.

A great asset to a woodworkers selection is a "pocket hole jig".

There are nearly limitless projects one can make, using the jigs.

Hi,

I'm Derek from Trinidad and Tobago. I'm new to woodworking and know that the Kreg system will give me a leg up in producing some worthwhile woodwork. My first two projects are a long overdue dog house and a couple chest of drawers for my daughters. Any tips &/or plans would be welcomed by this newbie.

I am a novice woodworker and DIYer.  I purchased my Kreg Jig to build a table for my Big Green Egg.  I have since built a few smaller projects.  I am looking forward to learning from everyone here on the forum.

My name is Jenny and I live in North Dakota. I'm pretty new to DIY and woodworking stuff (in the last few months) but I'm getting the hang of all the tools and I love coming up with new projects. I love seeing inspiration from people who have been doing this for way longer than I have! Really looking forward to getting ideas from projects on this forum. 

I'm Trevor from Des Moines, Ia and just got the K4 system. I'm not great at woodworking but learning and doing my best. Hopefully the kreg will help with good joinery.

Hey ya'll,  I'm Lydia and I live in Amarillo Texas.  My 84 year old dad raised all 10 of his children to do construction and woodworking.  I see a lot of his finished homes and business to this day and I am so proud to say "My daddy built that"  so I want to carry on his love of building.  I love to talk with him of the projects I have finished and ask his advice on current ones.  So with my new Kreg Jig I hope to make him even prouder and get some more DIY projects done around our house.  

Hi all my name is Don and I'm from Niagara Falls. I am an absolute beginer and am looking to begin woodworking saw the kreg tool and thought it might be something i could pull off ,we'll see.

Hi.

My name is Barrie Blood and I live in Hamilton Mi.

This is the first Kreg  Jig I have ever owned. I have seen it on T.V. and was impressed with it. Can't wait to use it. I am retired from a Company that refurs. office interiors. I worked in the wood room doing custom cutting of the work surfaces to order.

I have been interested in wood working since I was in 7th grade when I made a Cedar chest for my mother, and now my son has it. I have used recycled lumber from shipping crates to make free standing cabinets for our home, toy boxes, desks, book cases, and shelves.

I joined the Community so I could get to know more woodworkers like myself and get some good tips to better my woodworking ability.

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…
