My name is Richard I'm from Humble TX, its pronounced "umble". I have finally retired and now I have an opportunity to pursue my life long passion for woodworking to which I have very little experience. Throughout the years I have purchased some woodworking tools and hope to use them as soon as possible. I just finished making a Halloween coffin which will not stand up to close scrutiny but my grandkids love it.  

Hello, my name is Anthony and I’m new to the wood working thing I live in the hills of WV. Not completely I’m a carpenter but this is a new aspect to carpentry that I have not really thought to much of. But seeing how I’m recently disabled and unable to work I think a wood working hobby would do me some good, and keep me busy. I would love to be able to make some cool stuff like a smoker to smoke meats and such. Hope to get some help and advice along the way. 

Hi my name is Ed McElroy I live in Connecticut, beautiful this time of year.Strange weather this year it's November and it's been in the 70's for almost a week now. I've done some basic carpentry over the years (decks, remodels etc.) always wanted to do woodworking as a hobby,I'm in my 50's now so relaxing in my shed is a "Good Time" . My girl bought me this tool for Christmas and to be honest I never heard of it before. Never could have done this work as well without my Kreg tools and I plan on getting more for Christmas this year. Glad to be part of the Kreg community. I spend more time outside or in my shed than on the computer but I will be checking this site regularly. I am trying to find plans for a counter high (off the ground) garden bed . Any suggestions would be appreciated.  


Hi Jim,I just thought it kinda funny I work at 3M in Ct. I just developed a job for them crated up the equipment and shipped it off to Columbia Missouri,. Small world. Ed

Howdy from Columbia, Missouri. My name is Jim and I'm just starting to get back into woodworking after too many years away from it. I bought the R3 jig and will be using it to construct some toy boxes for the great grandkids.

Welcome Anthony !!  Where in WV ??

Hi all, my name is Neil and I am originally from the North East of England but for the last 12 years I have called Adelaide in South Australia home. I have always wanted to get into woodwork since I did it as a subject in High School. Finally at the age of 52! I got the wife's permission to buy some equipment and set up a small workshop. So far I have done 3 projects using my Kreg K5 jig, hopefully these are the first of many.

Hi Everly

Thanks for the welcome - not sure you got the right person as I live in Nantwich, England

Hi everybody.

My name is Miloslav (in american tradition - Michael).

I'm in-house counsel for big company in Moscow, Russia. Woodworking is one of my hobbies. Three years ago I moved from the city to village nearby and discovered that my own house needs some tiny improvements on day-to-day basis.

I also very like fishes and water plants and have a plenty of fishtanks. Factory made cabinets for fishtanks also need to be improved.

Thus, I started doing things by my own hands and soon discovered Kreg and other american tools. Unfortunately, prices for american hardware are enormous high in Russia and not easy to find, nevertheless, I collected many of them. I like Kreg's tools for fresh ideas.

I used to travel a lot and amongst many other countries have been in many places of the US (Texas, Florida, Louisiana, California, NY and Washington DC).

Due to my job I have to spend almost all the time at work. So, my woodworking hobby is accommodated by couple of hours at weekends only. Recently I with my youngest son made a bird feeder (winter is coming and more and more forest birds come to the village looking for food) and now we are making lego table for the junior.

For next spring we have great plans such gardener bench and chairs for bbq zone.

I'm delighted to join you community. I participate also in some Russian woodworking forums as well.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thanks and best regards

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…
