Hello, my name is Ron I am 59 years old and recently retired. I live in South Carolina and look forward to meeting everyone.

Good afternoon every one my name is Drew and I am from Florence South Carolina.  I am a part owner of a small cabinet and woodworking shop here and also have my own design company as well.  In addition I am a avid "DIYer" working on a 1950 Colonial Revival.  I plan to share my shop and personal projects and get some ideas from others. 

Hello Andrew, I am in Orangeburg. I don't make it to Florence to often. I look forward to seeing some of your projects. I am just starting my adventure into woodworking but looking forward to the challenge.

Hi, My name is Wilbert and I live in Milford,CT.  I do a little woodwork from time to time, mostly build small items, although my first project after I retired was a full size working hobby desk for my wife. Used no plans or specs, just started one day and finished a month later. I have inherited many woodworking tools from my wife's grandfather, but have some modern tools from her father, and a few I buy here and there.  My first Kreg tool is the kreg junior r3.  

Good evening one and all. I have just literally purchased a kreg pocket hole jig and am very much looking forward to using it in my projects. I love using reclaimed timber, mainly pallets, and like to make a lot of garden furniture and planters. I have been woodworking for many years now but only recently had to time to get really into it so am gradually building up a very nice collection of tools and thought it was about time I added a pocket hole jig to that collection. I look forward to being hear. Thank you

Hi! My name is Pili and I live in Spain. I have a DIY blog and have seen so many beautiful things made with the Kreg Jig that I really wanted one for myself. My husband ordered it online as a surprise for my and today I received mine. I can't wait to learn to use it and make lots of projects with it. Any tips are more than welcome!

My blog is called My Sweet Things, I hope I can post all my stuff there and help others as well.

Hello. My name is Rob and I am a new keg user. Just got mine i look forward to using it. I'm excited to see what I can do with it. My first project is a new oak table top for my travel trailer, my nephew broke my other one when he plopped down on it. I am doing more wood work now since I injured my back and can't work as a mechanic anymore. I have my limitations I just work inside them. 

Hello, my name is Dom and I have started to make tables that I use to have made from a few Mill Shops that I sell in my company. The Mill Shops never could get the product to me on time, so I have taken to doing them myself. It gave me a good excuse to build the woodworking shop I always wanted

Hello everyone, My name is Rhonda and I'm from Houston Tx ! I  recently started  going to thrift stores and I started noticing old furniture that was there week after week just gathering dust. It seemed that everyone else didn't see what I saw, I started getting excited imagining all the different possibilities for each piece I saw. I've gotta admit  that I did go a bit over board in the beginning and ended up with a garage full of old furniture! I didn't realize it was a "problem" until my husband brought it to my attention that his car no longer fit in there! So I started to refurbish each piece & when I was done I put them on Craigslist, and they actually started  buying them! I never planned on this becoming a way to make extra income but with having 5 kids I'm definitely NOT complaining, and either is my husband now! lol!

Hi all ..... Just purchased my first Kreg product ... K5MS. My first project is a set of book shelves. They will be a 90 degree set along adjoining walls.
Are there any current plans available that can help with dual shelves at 90 degrees to each?
Thanks for your support.

My name is David.

I've never made or used a pocket hole before. I've been installing cabinets for about a year and now I'm also setting up a cabinet shop. I bought a K4 jig but haven't had time to try it yet (really busy). The method of building I am going to use will require a lot of pocket holes.

I had a lumber drying and machining business a few years ago supplying local cabinet shops. I've also been a professional welder, ran heavy equipment, worked on farms, drove a truck for 4 million miles, and a few other things.

I'm a workaholic. 100+ hours a week was not unusual a few years ago. 70 or 80 is more my speed now.

David once you start using pocket screws it opens up a whole new world of design for cabinets.

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

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?

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…
