My name is Jim and I live in north central Illinois. I have been doing woodworking for many years and now that I'm retired hope to do more. I had never thought of the Kreg Jig as something that would enhance my shop, but was faced with a project which would require a lot of butt joints and it seemed like it would be better than biscuits or dowels or mortise and tenon. I am very sorry I hadn't purchased this great tool many years ago. What a great method of joinery and so easy to use. My first project of three large radiator covers, one including storage cabinets on each end was a breeze with the Kreg Jig. I look forward to doing many more projects with the Kreg Jig.
Hi, I am Ray & I am from Malaysia, I have been interested in woodworking and landscaping since I help my dad entend our house back in the sixties. I have just bought the master, deck jig, the micro and the mini jig. I just got them by mail order 2 days ago from UK. Haven't had a chance to try them out yet. can't wait to try them out but had been kind of busy this few weeks.

Hello, I'm Joseph my wife Michelle. Purchased several Kreg jig's own 2 home can't live in either trying to relocate from Katrina. Hard to believe there are still people recovering from the big one. We're new to the community. Bought Kreg equipment to hasten our rebuild. Have used the Jr. to pocket hole some 2"x6" studs in place worked well on edges toe nailed faces. I'm old school Router , bisquit, dowel , tongue and groove, and dove tail joinery with glue and clamps. Find the Pocket hole sytem very helpful and quicker. Working on getting 2nd home redy for move in turned out to be a tear down to stud walls in and out repair sills and beams. To simplfy it's and JM Walters home buit in the mid 80's. We have been looking over project plans and hope we can get to the point of cabinet building soon. Well howdy from Mississippi and may God bless.

Sincerely,

Joseph & MIchelle

Hi! I'm Chris from New Jersey and have recently purchased the Kreg Jig. I'm looking forward to picking the collective brains of some of the experienced woodworkers here online once I get the basics down.

Hi All.

I'm new to woodworking. I recently purchased a Kreg jig that I used to make a (very simple!) end table.

I look forward to exchanging information with this community.

 

Thanks!

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…
