The flag case is very beautiful. Great work,

HI my name is Graham and I am based in the UK.  I have come at the Kreg Tool from the other end - I am designing a TV surround and floating shelves in Sketchup and came across a recommendation for Kreg Tool within one of the Pintrest ideas.  So now incorporating Tim's pockets into my design and just deciding on whether to go for the 3 or 4.  I love a bit of woodwork, but the time saving aspect of this tooling really appeals...

Hello everyone, my name is Mark and I live in Sioux City, IA.  I have always been a DIYer but recently decided to try woodworking.  I renovated a room in my house and turned it into a small shop.  I recently removed a wood fireplace and old volcanic stone wall and updated it to an electric fireplace and Airstone wall with 55" tv.  I am now using my new shop to build a couple of built in cabinets.  I am doing a lot of reading and video watching so I know exactly what I will run into.  I have built the carcasses and now moving on to the face frames.  I usually don't know what I am doing when I start a project but come away with a ton of knowledge for the next time!

Hello Mark,

Looks like the beginings of some very rewarding work going to happen there.

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? 

A picture would be good to make a objective jusgement for you otherwise try one and see for yourself, as I am reasonable sure 1t would be OK

Hi all.

My name is Greg and I'm from central Indiana. I've been woodworking for the last year or so. I have the K4 and have used it multiple times already.

I have a shop set up in my barn and have spent many evenings in it. I consider myself a beginner but my wife says I have moved beyond the beginner stage. I guess that's why I married her, lol.

I hope to learn new skills from the group.

Hello Kreg community, my name is Mike and I live in upstate NY.  I'm an avid DIYer and consider myself an intermediate woodworker. I'm finishing my basement and my recent project was to design and build myself a mobile workbench.  I've learned a lot from my dad including stone work, building furniture and design.  I've got 3 young kids and I like to learn new skills.

Hey everyone!

New to the group here. I live in Houston (cypress area) and have a small start up called Southern Rustic Custom Furniture and Decor. I have been using Kreg jig for a while but just now realized there was a group here. I have post some of my more recent projects if you want to take a look. Looking forward to seeing you guys around the shop (site).

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…
