Thanks, Keith.  My bride and I just completed construction on our retirement nest and she was kind enough to let me use the 2000 sq. ft. basement for a shop.  I have to hurry up and fill it with tools before she changes her mind!

Nice looking glider.  I also like the Clean Basement and I am sure that woodworking will fill it nicely with machines and benches.  Good luck with your next project.

Hi my name is Mark and I live in NW Florida, bought the Kreg k4

My name is Paul Howard, I live in Arkansas I'm retired from Kraft Foods. I started woodworking about one year ago. I joined the kreg group to learn more about the craft and I also like Kreg products, and own and use them in my shop.


My name is Herb and I live in Madison Wisconsin.  I taught high school wood shop for 20 years and I still have all my fingers.  I've built my own house and many personal projects during that time.  I've always enjoyed using the Kreg jigs but have never owned one of my own.  I look forward to learning from this community and continuing to use my new Kreg.

On a side note, I'm also into motorcycling, aviation, and watching the Green Bay Packers.

Welcome Herb I share all of your passions except for one of them I am from Minnesota, but the packers are my #2 team :}

Greetings all,

My name is Tony and I would consider myself an intermediate level woodworker, but really enjoy building things with my hands. I live in Virginia and retired on July 1, 2017 so I have more time now to devote to some projects. I joined the Kreg Community to get some inspiration from other woodworkers. I enjoy working with reclaimed wood products, taking something old and making it new again.

Hello folks. My name is Ron and I live in Knoxville Tennessee. I retired from the Marine Corps 16 years ago and will retire a second time from a nuclear weapons facility in 4 more years. I love to mess around with wood. I’ve only built a few items but have learned something new each time. I wish I had the time and space to do more.
