My name is Lyndon, from a fringe suburb south west of Sydney. I have joined this forum, and bought some Kreg tools, to get more out of life after selling my PITA transport business to go into battle with cancer. I won that battle but my body, in the changes after a massive operation, consumed itself for a year to the point where I am now 33 kgs (72lbs) lighter than I was when I got sick. Working on some woodwork projects, and my garage, and my toy (2000 Jaguar XJR) is where I want to go now that I can only work part time. Got some more Kreg parts today and will be looking to use them soon.

Hello, I am Clifton. I live in sunny Barbados and I spent most of my working life around either fast cars or airplanes. I am now retired and fortunately I purchased many tools along the way but seldom had the chance to use them for the many projects in my head. I now have that time and so I also found that we never have enough space for the tools we have...so the journey begins...purchased a k4 and k5 kit.

Hi, my name is Allyn and I live in Canton, Michigan. I am retired and took up woodworking when my daughter asked me to build her 2 Adirondack chairs. I bought a plan and they turned out so well that I have made her 2 more chairs and I have made 10 more for friends. One of my friends asked me to design a wine rack and I recently finished building that all with Kreg pocket screws. I recently bought the mini for tight places and repairs and a shorter bit to get into tight places. My latest project involves another wine rack using live edge lumber. .

Hello,

My name is Troy, I live in Southern GA and I joined the Kreg Owners Community to get possible ideas and help if needed in future projects. I am very new to woodworking but really enjoy it. I have seen commercials about the Kreg pocket hole jigs and thought they were a neat product. I had a project I needed to do and decided to use the pocket hole jig for the job. It was fantastic. My project was a little crude, but it does the job and is very sturdy.

I am a committee member of the Monash Men's Shed Melbourne Australia (we are on facebook).

I look forward to being able to contribute to the Kreg community as we go forward from.

Many thanks!!

Good day to you all, I'm Richard, Originally from Australia, living in sunny Iowa ( I know what you're think and don't ask lol), I've got carpentry in my blood steming back 5 generations, I missed my calling but still have fun building large and small projects, I never had issue with screwing wood together at angles but kreg's pocket hole jig made it a whole lot easier and fun, I tackled my first project this past weekend, outdoor chairs and table ( Pic posted) and had fun doing it.
I look forward to seeing what everyone is doing and am happy to help and have no problem asking for assistance when needed.

Well I am Frank from North Carolina and decided to build a work shop so when I retire in a few years I can have some fun again doing woodworking. Have not had the chance to do any in several years due to working conditions and other hobbies "HAM RADIO". So getting back into wood working will be my new past time along with radio. Will be asking questions as I go along and I really like the Kreg tools. Makes life much easier. Got a lot of projects I want to do so hopefully I can keep all of you posted.

Hi, my name is Jeannie Buechele and I am from Phoenix, Arizona I am a newbie to building and KregJig got me started. It gives me satisfaction when I build something for my home and am looking forward to building a kitchen table next for my family :)

Hello, I'm Adam. I live in Denver with my beautiful wife. I bought a Kreg Jig after seeing I would need one to complete a project she wanted me to build. Now the mania has set in and I'm pretty sure I won't ever need to buy furniture from a store again. Except maybe a couch or anything upholstered. Can't wait to try more Kreg products. Which one shall I try next?

Steve Bell, Calgary Alberta.

I've been using the Kreg tools for the past 3-months, but in a much different way.  The house we bought has a new fence but the previous owners and neighbors didn't know what a level was or a string line, so it looks very much like the wall of China, all over the place.  So...I've been shoring up the fence using the drill bit and kreg screws, removing the useless fence brackets, pulling the sections together using a ratchet strap and then the counter sink bit as well as screws tighten everything up very nicely.

Now if only I can figure out how to use the darn jig... :)

Looking forward to looking over some plans, and then building 'stuff' with it.

My name is Dan Self. I have long been interested in woodworking. I am retired and have time now to learn. I live near St. Louis, Mo. Trying to overcome vision problems that hinder my projects. I will learn this! I have not finished a project yet. Practicing making good joints with my Kreg Jig. I want to build a workbench for my garage workshop. Any advice is welcome. Thanks

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…
