Hello. Monty here from Oklahoma. Long time (self-proclaimed) DIYer, but previously more concerned with function over form (admittedly, it showed). Recently retired at 60 and am looking forward to upgrading all my older, contractor grade equipment with the tools and devices to start focusing on the appearance of the finished product. Recently took a class on raised panel doors at a local Woodcraft store and was amazed at the equipment/devices now available. Due to limited space, my only permanent placements will be a cabinet saw (already in place), a vacuum system and a miter saw table (in the planning stages). Everything else will be mobile.  I have purchased some Kreg jigs and tables during setup. Once the shop is set up and equipped properly, first order of business is two 8' x 8' x 1' cabinets for the south wall.

Anyway, I am looking forward to benefiting from your collective wisdom in learning what I need and how to properly use what I am fortunate enough to have. Thank you in advance for any and all communication. 

Regards, 

EMH

welcome glad to have you here.I am new to woodworking and learning a little at a time .This was my first time making something that big lol.

Hi folks, my name is Layman - I live in Cincinnati, OH - fairly new to wood working but have several projects lined up this summer, which is why I purchased the Kerg system.  Are their any - Getting Started Videos - ? 

Good morning (well it is here in Australia). As a retired school teacher I now have a little more time and a list of wood working projects that I want to tackle. I have some experience with simple things like building dog kennels, simple book shelves, replacing kennel doors etc. Having seen the pocket hole joining system on the internet I bought a Kreg jig (not all that easy to get in Oz) to use in my current project, which is a roll out pantry for the kitchen (to keep my partner happy). I have been inspired by Ana White's web site and the notion that "women can do woodwork" and look forward to being part of this community. Cheers. Lynne W

Hi my name is Dan and I live in Silt  Colorado I have a small shop in which we make bandsaw boxes picture frames signs and scroll saw art projects and other small projects. I am looking forward to finding new projects to do and learn more about wood working.

I am Christopher Oakes. Currently completing a California king bed frame and headboard using the Kreg tool, it is going very well. I am a k-5 art teacher in Stone Mountain, GA. Summer is coming so I will be working on a kitchen makeover using the K-T.

Hi, my name is Tim and I live in extreme Southern Illinois. In fact, every now and then , Superman flies over my house. My wife keeps me in projects all the time, it seems. I've used a Kreg off and on for about 10 years. I recently purchased a master system, which is my 3rd Kreg Jig. I am always looking for new ideas and new things to build. If only I a shop big enough to carry out all those grand ideas!

Hi, i am Rachael from Australia. i have no building experience and thought it would be a good idea to buy the kreg tool because I wad sick of not being able to do thongs for myself. it looked so simple on tv. Now i have it and have no idea how to use it. Can't work out what size sscrews with which depth holes and size of the wood. Any help or suggestions would be awesome.

Hello, my name is Luis but most people call me L to keep it simple. I'm from Southeast Texas and completely new to woodworking in general but this is why I bought a K5MS and join the community to learn and to build.

Hello everyone.  My name is Marc and I am a Firefighter in Colorado Springs.  I loved woodworking in high school, many, many, years ago, and recently have renewed my passion after building a kitchen table for our new fire station.  I was introduced to the Kreg Jig by a friend and its an amazing tool to have.  I am having a new home built and I plan to build a lot of the furniture we will need.  The project gallery here is great and showcases some seriously talented folks.  I look forward to building and interacting with you fine woodworkers!

Hello Rachael and welcome to the kreg Community

Funny post I tell you I hope you meant to say "do things for myself"!

The kreg Jig is a breeze to use once you master the skills..and you do not need to be wearing a thong either !!
enough said before I get into troble!

Miter Saw Recommendation

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?

Miter saw stand

     Has anyone used one of the Kreg Universal Stand configurations as the base for a miter saw workstation with fold down wings?  I scrolled through the pics in the community and all I saw were using a DIY base cabinet.  I have an extra Kreg router…Continue

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…
