Hello Everyone,
My name is Ron Q. and a resident of Washington State. I am a recent (1st time) home owners and pretty green in wood building & creating. That being said, I eager to learn how to build, create, repair & update my home without being too dependent on contractors, if I could help it. I am familiar with power tools, i.e. hand tools, but never really built things I'd considered "Show-Case Worthy", just the basic shelves, fence repairs, etc., now, with these tools and shared projects from everybody in Kregg's Community, I see helpful and limitless options/ideas with knowledge, ideas and pointers in woodworking over time.
Thank you.
Im kind of new at this.enjoy wood working

Hello!  My name is Krissy and I'm from Eastern Washington.  My husband and son gave me a compound sliding miter saw for my birthday in 2014, which really sparked my interest to start building things. I bought my K4 soon after and have been making furniture ever since.  I started a blog to share my builds and hope that my projects will inspire others to tackle a challenge they've been anxious to begin:


Hi I'm Dave, I live in Temple TX. I own a small handy man and construction business. I really enjoy Kreg tools.

Hi folks,

Hi I'm Pete and I live on the west coast of Canada on Vancouver Island.  I'm a 42 year old banker that has only completed two simple woodworking projects (one using a k4 jig that I purchased when I saw how easy it made joining pieces).  I use mostly tools that were gifted to me but I think I'm hooked on woodworking.  I'm just a bit overwhelmed with how much I have to learn.

My next project I'd really like to build is a simple (and I mean SIMPLE - keep in mind my beginner status) dresser for my youngest daughter.  She's 4 years old and we're still using the baby change table/dresser for her clothes.  Does anyone have any good plans?  I saw a couple of nice ones here by some users but I really need step by step plans.

I also could use advice on the first tools to upgrade.  I have a small Mastercraft table saw that is quite old and has a really flimsy fence.  I'm thinking this is my top priority to replace but I also have no router or jointer.  Getting a good square on my materials has been pretty challenging so far.

I'm all ears if anyone wants to chime in with some advice.  Oh, and if anyone has some simple dresser plans to share that would be great!

Thanks Kreg for connecting us on here - great idea!


I wrote up something last night and posted...but it's gone.  Seeing that no one else has posted in a while - is there a problem?

I've been using my Adaptive Cutting System table for a few years now, and it's been really solid. This past week was the first time I ever needed to use the miter guide though.I was rebuilding some shelving in a tiny closet and I discovered the…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…
