Hello, my name is Charlie, I live in the central part of England and have been woodworking for most of my adult life.  Now recently retired, I will have more time to progress my wood skills.  I have just laid out a new wood shop at home and will finish this over the next few weeks.  I am a turner and also make small furniture pieces, up to now as gifts for family and friends.  I have posted a quick shot of a couple of rustic oak door stops made from a nominal 150mm (6 inch) square oak beam.  The handles are manilla rope, which has been made into a soft eye.  I will post some turned items later.

My first Kreg tool was the mitre gauge, and also the featherboard kit.  I plan to use the mitre gauge on a table saw as an upgrade, and on the bandsaw - which did not come with one!  The featherboards are for the router table and the jointer.

I have joined the community to share ideas, tips and plans.

Cheers!

Charlie

Hi fellow Kreg enthusiasts!

I'm Jen and I run The House of Wood, a DIY and design blog. I'm a performing songwriter by trade, but when I was pregnant with our first child (3 years ago), the nesting instinct hit me hard. I dove head first into the world of DIY and have been loving it ever since! I enjoy building furniture and use the Kreg Jig for pretty much everything I build! I'm an Army wife, so we're constantly on the move, but we originally call Nashville home.

Looking forward to checking out your projects!

Hi Jen,

My wife's dad was a long-time British Army man, so we are aware of the constant moving thing!

How does your blog work - do you have a link?

What are you working on at the moment?

Hi Charles,

My blog is at http://jenwoodhouse.com/blog

I'm currently building a console table for my parents foyer.

Pretty impressive. Sorry, we reserved Brits find the "awesome" word difficult!

But really great to see women actively involved with what has been a traditional men only area.  Looking forward to seeing the finished console table.

Thanks, Charles. It's always funny to see people's reactions when my husband tells them all the power tools in our garage belong to his wife. :)

I just posted some previous projects to my page, looking forward to getting started on my foyer table!

Hi, my name is JoAnn and I live in Hamburg, NY.

I have been into woodworking for almost two years now and am loving it.  I am retired and am a DIY person .  This has been the most challenging for me but the first thing I built was turning an old dresser into a kitchen Island for my daughter and that got me hooked into woodworking.   I just finished 4 adirondack chairs and I am so pleased how they turned out.   I am in the process of making a paint spray booth that I found on you tube and hopefully it will make the spray painting a lot easier and less mess to clean up.  I love my kreg pocket hole jig and also the multi square.   Looking forward to making a lot more DIY.  Love seeing what everyone is making and all the helpful hints.

My name is Robert and I am from Missouri.  I have done a few projects in the past nothing to crazy or ambitious.  Done some restoration work to my wifes great grandparents old table and buffet also a toy box for my boys.  Finally got a jig I bought the Master toolbox collection plus the shelf pin jig and right angle clamp.  Found it all on sale at Grizzly so I couldn't resist.  Look forward to building different things and sharing and hopefully getting some good feedback to help myself get better.

Wow looks fantastic!

Hello, my name is Terry. New to woodworking and I thought the Kreg system looked like it would be a good starter point. I am living in Florida on the Gulf coast and the humidity rusts almost all the metal patio furniture.  I thought wood would be better than plastic, so I jumped in.

Hi Terry:

Welcome to the woodworking hobby.   I love the Kreg Jigs and they make it much easier for a beginner woodworker as well as an experienced worker.  You can make great patio furniture using the kreg pocket jig.

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…
