Greetings - My name is Madhu Sudhan. I live in IL. I am a rookie wood worker (if I can call myself one). I have dabbled with Woodworking in the past. This holidays I took it more seriously did some work in my basement, also took time to build a Rustic mirror by watching videos on Youtube. Purchased a Kreg Jig for pocket holes. Want to invest in the circular saw guide to be able to cut straight. I look forward to learn from all you professionals.

Hello, My name is Roxane Bouquot. I also live in IL. I have the circular saw guide. It's a wonderful tool. I had a horrible time cutting a straight line with a circular saw. With the circular saw guide it's no problem.

Hello, My name is Robert and i live in Georgia, in the Metro Atlanta area.  I have been working with wood off and on since Industrial Arts class in Junior high in the mid 80's.  I love to buld things by hand, but i am a little new to the Kreg Jig's. I use to just toe my screws in, but really like the clean look from using the Jig.  I am always looking for a new project to build and will be starting on a new workbench soon for my Miter and Table saw and may include my scroll saw on to it as well.

hello all i am new to the page, i live in farmingville new york which is on long island, 

Good day folks. Thanks for the entry to this forum. My name is Noah and I live in Northwest Montana. My wood working experience is basic, I do a lot better at the framing portion than the finishing if that makes sense. I appreciate the tools and plans that Kreg offers, it certainly makes life easier.

Hello All, my name is Jonathan Marshall from Maryland.  My only experience with woodworking was a 125’ run of shadow-box fence with gate that I had built this past summer; enjoyed it very much.  People constantly compliment the craftsmanship and will often ask for the contractor that constructed it.  When I tell them it was me, they’re shocked.  I too, am shocked how well it came out.  Always wanted to build furniture, so now, with Kreg tools in hand, looking forward to starting my new hobby.  Just need time and space.  As for why I joined the community, looking for suggestions, tips and tricks from others willing to share.  Have to admit, I also just like to see others completed projects / works of art!

Hello group. My name is Janet, live in South Carolina, and I am at the beginner level. I received a Kreg jig and a few other Kreg products for Christmas and a new table saw for my 60th birthday 3 days later. The way I'm gaining experience is to build shop items with the help of YouTube. My car now sits outside instead of in the garage and I'm enjoying learning. I have a new appreciation for the everyday things and how they are made.

Hello, My name is Matt and I live in Wood-Ridge, NJ. I am an extreme novice when it comes to woodworking, but after my wife bought me a Kregjig, I took it on as more of a hobby. I am looking to gain a little more insight and get some project ideas and look forward to your insight.

Hi folks

Earl here from Hinesville Georgia. I think of myself as an intermediate hobbiest. Bought a k4 jig and made a good old fashioned screen door for the front of the house. I'll try and post photos when I get them off my phone. I don't have much of an imagination, but I sure can follow plans. I've always been a fan of Norm from this old house. Now that I'm older and not running the streets I figure I'll stay home and start some projects.
Didn't even know this site existed! Weekend warrior/intermediate diy'er and excited to learn from everyone here. I have a lot of ?'s!

Hi Everyone, my name is Bruce and I live in the Boise, Idaho area. I enjoy, woodworking and gardening.  Last spring I built several raised beds in the garden and last Fall built a 10 X 12 storage shed from scratch.  When we bought our current place about 5 years ago, I turned most of my 3 car garage into a wood shop and using the Kreg pocket hole jig, I built a 22 ft. long work bench with my chop saw in the middle and 4 banks of drawers, 3 high on either side. 24 drawers total.  Last November, I purchased 2 of the Kreg Mobile project centers but am still waiting for them to ship.  Think they will work nicer than the 2 collapsible saw horses that I built years ago.  They hold 3 10 ft 2 X 4 and give me a large cutting work surface but are very awkward to set up and to store.

I work in the computer industry but love to be out in my shop or garden.

What brought me to this community board was the Miter Saw Dust Hood.  That's something I really need to put around my saw.

They suggested I upload a picture or 2 of a project I did.  My son-in-law is a TMJ doctor and I built him 3 cabinets for 3 of his patient rooms where they used a laptop.  This is a picture of one of them installed.

Hi everyone, amateur woodworker here from Liverpool on the other side of the pond.

Been making saw dust for a couple of years now, starting with cheap tools etc. But the more i got into woodworking, the more i got mad about sh*t joints and untrue cuts because of poor tools. Started to buy proper tools, Dewalt, Makita and now Kreg etc, and voila, perfect joints and no stress lol.

Really looking forwards to learning from you all.

Cheers guys 'n' gals,

Nick. Y.N.W.A. :)

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…
