Getting ready to retire in another year and a half I Just about have all of my shop put together. I just purchased some Kreg products and got on to this site which pumps me up even more about my new endeavor's. I don't have a lot of things that I made but my recent project are two signs I made for my Church. I will upload them and once again thank you for allowing me to be part of the Kreg community.

I am really beginning in the woodworking aspect of home projects.  Mostly I have been working on the home remodeling or floors.

I think my first project may be to try and replicate a mission style nightstand for our master bedroom set.

My name is Jason. I received my kreg jig 4 master kit for Christmas. I'm really looking forward to making some new pieces.

Hello, my name is Louie and I live in Beckley, WV. I am just getting started in woodworking, but love making things. I hope to get some ideas and chat about projects that i would like to build.

Hey Ed, I love the look of your treasure chest. Did you put it together with Kreg?

Hello all-
My name is Chris and my wife bought me a Kreg system earlier this year to make a spice rack for the back of our pantry door. Since then I haven't really had time to make much with it until a neighbor wanted me to make some bookends for her this Christmas. Now I'm going to try and get back into learning what this tool can do.

Hi! My name is Mike Ryan but usually go by "Pop" to all my friends and my son's friends. I live out in the countryside of South Central Pa. I've been working with wood since 10th grade and even before when my father would let me "build" something in his shop. That makes some of the splinters and boo boos I have at least 60 years old now. I found working with wood to be so interesting and at times even obsessive. Think about it.. what other media can bring joy to not only the builder but the recipient of the project as well. AND if the project turns out to be a bust... can even supply you with heat on a cold Winter day! My projects range from the usual to the unusual. I always believe anything can be made out of wood. My wood locks (that work) are an example of that. My wood motor is another outside of the box project too. "Ethel" is my biggest project to date. I hope you enjoy my projects and pictures as much as I'm looking forward to seeing yours and sharing our knowledge of the craft with everyone. We need to get the upcoming generations away from the ipads, tablets  and electronic distractions and out into the wood shop to make some saw dust.

Retired, homeowner multiple college degrees, do-it-yourselfer that would rather build it myself than buy it, plus i will make it better than most store bought benches, tables, beds, anything of wood. Admired my brothers Kreg stuff this summer, and ended up with some of it for xmas. Looking forward to stronger, and better joints, and final projects. Kids have projects lined up waiting for me to buy wood and get started. Absolutely going to get more accessories, clamps, guides, etc.

hello folks, my name is Bill , I am a retired electrician doing some woodworking as a hobby and have recently acquired some Kreg pocket hole tools and I am very please with their ease of use.

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…
