Hey Everyone, 

My name is Brent, I currently live in Kennesaw GA, but formerly from NJ. I have been doing some basic woodworking throughout the years but recently I was doing some home repair projects and decided to pick up a Kreg Jig Master kit, I didn't realize what I was getting myself into.  I've had other pocket jigs in the past but the Kreg is the best, so now I am getting into it a little more woodworking and looking for more projects to create and work on. I look forward meeting you and getting a lot of information here. 

Hello, my name is Karla and I am a blogger at www.smalltownrambler.com. I enjoy doing DIY projects and decorating our 60's home on a budget. Not only do I enjoy doing these projects, but I like to learn from other bloggers and hope to inspire others to get the courage to try their own projects by walking them through the process, step-by-step, on my blog. I recently purchased the Kreg Jig K4 and completed our dining table made from reclaimed wood and I am already on to my next project with the Kreg Jig! I wish I had purchased this tool a long time ago. Thanks for having me here in the Kreg owner's community!

Hello all! My name is Elliott. I live in Vancouver, BC. I have pretty much no experience in wood working yet. My wife and I recently bought a coffee table and after getting it home I sat and looked at it and thought "I could build that..." So, after a little trial and error in the garage trying to drill pocket holes (I didn't know they were called that at the time) I made crude bench out of scrap 2x4's. So I did a little research I found out that a Kreg Jig would be a must to do this type of work properly. I have been a video game artist for 15 years, and everything I make is just a graphic for a game. Now I want to make something real! My first project will be the work bench that I will use to make everything else on. looking forward to it!

Hello Everyone.....my name is Bob Fisher and I live in Central New York.  Became fully retired this year.  I have done numerous handyman projects around the house and for others.  Being retired I now have more time to dedicate to various projects.  My daughter is currently remodeling their kitchen and needed a new 30 inch wide double wall oven cabinet to replace their old 27 inch wide cabinet.  I purchased the Kreg K4 master system and I figured lets give it a try.  I designed and built the cabinet to meet the new oven dimensions and specifications. Used 3/4 inch birch plywood for the carcass and trimmed the face frames with poplar.  Even built a drawer for below the oven.  Needless to say my daughter is thrilled with how it looks and the money she saved compared to buying at the big box stores....I just guess that's what Dad's do.  The Kreg jig rocks!

Hi, Kreggers! I'm Daniel (NOT 'Dan') from Beverly Hills, MI. Fairly skilled DIYer, and an intermediate woodworker.

Kind of in awe of some of the projects on here. While I doubt I'll ever make anything quite as intricate as a foldable airplane, I'm gaining confidence to attempt more challenging pieces.

Absolutely LOVE the several Kreg tools/jigs I purchased — really nice products that make my work look far better than it is.

Looking forward to new ideas and taking my skills and abilities up a few notches.

Hello my name is Chris, I am from Oklahoma, and consider myself a beginner and have not done much woodwork since high school that's right back in the day when we had wood shop in school.

New Jersey resident. Recently bought a Kreg bandsaw fence for Porter Cable saw, but haven't installed it yet.

Hoping to pick up tips from people here, so I can continue 'playing' with wood.

Hi,

I'm Josh, I have done a little bit of woodworking in the past but not to much.  Its something I enjoy but don't get to do very often.  Currently its just my wife and I in Stockton California but we are trying to adopt as well as get out of Stockton, I am from Northern California and she is from Italy.(Yes, Eharmony really does work!)

The only "fine furniture" type project I have done is a flag and medal case I did as a wedding present to my wife, she had never even received her father's burial flag.  She was in tears when I gave it to her.  Anyhow now I am working on a desk hence why I bought the kreg pockethole jr jig

Hi my name is Harry and I live in Jay Florida, about 40 miles East of Pensacola. I like working with pallets, black pipe and am excited to learn how to use the Kreg Jig. I got the Kreg K4 Jig, 3" Face Clamp and Screw Kit for Christmas. I have added a Right Angle Clamp, and a bundle that includes the Kitchen Accessories and Crown Molding Jig.  I am ready to start something with all of these great tools but I think first on he project list is a workbench that will accommodate the Kreg Jig and Clamp Track. 

Hello, My name is Anthony Tosi. I live in New Jersey. I am wondering if the Kreg Jig would work on joining the pre made pine crates that Home Depot Sells. They will be used to support a 3/4" piece of either Oak or the finished Pine Board, But How I am securing the crates is one is going to be long ways and the one on top is going to be standing up, Would the Kreg Jig work for my purpose? 

Michael here from Georgia and learning woodworking. Just bought and got my Kreg Foreman to make pocket holes.

That is a beautiful flag case. Good work,

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

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…
