Hi, been a Kreg user since the beginning. Always had success with their jigs and will continue to use them.
My name is Russ from Rolling Meadows IL. I'm recently retire and getting back into woodworking. I'm taking a class at a local High school. My project is a bookcase. I'll be using pocket holes to assemble the unit. I bought a K5 Master system for home projects. I'm looking forward to learning alot from this forum.
I live in Springfield TN. just outside of Nashville. I bought a K5 master system, have not used it yet. Looking forward to it. I have a woodshop in my basement and enjoy woodworking when I can. Looking forward to being apart of the community here.
Hi, my name is Chris. I live in east central Indiana. I am recently retired and am new to woodworking. Looking forward to learning from this group. I like working with Kreg pocket joinery and working with router. I recently completed my first major project, a vanity for my granddaughter. It is actually a conglomeration of techniques as I was learning on the fly. It is far from perfect but I have learned a lot, and it is onward and upward from here. I’ll post a photo when I get a chance.
My name is Shawn Hampt and I’m from Maryland. I am a beginning woodworker (novice at best). I joined to get and share info and knowledge in working with wood and learn from others. Love all my Kreg products, especially my K5!
This past weekend I decided to build myself a simple mailbox to replace the plastic piece of junk hanging on my gate, so I got to use the brand-new pair of corner clamps that were delivered just last week. They really made the job a lot easier and since I don't even have a mounted vise at the moment I can just imagine how frustrating it would've been to try and keep those sides together while glueing and screwing them in place without the clamps!
I'm not done yet, because I still have to fit the lid and front door, but I wouldn't have been nearly as far as I am now without those clamps. They're a little sensitive and finicky to adjust, but once they're at the right setting they really do a great job!
I live in North Alabama and have raised two teenage boys. I have been doing woodworking and DIY projects for over 30 years.
I also, cook, play guitar and keep salt and fresh water aquariums.
I started using pocket holes in the 80s on a jig I built for a drill press and had to use two different drill bits, but it worked. :)
HSV Alabama or Texas?
Whoops! See it now.
Hi folks. I am Chris and I just retired in Ontario, Canada. Couple hours due north of Syracuse NY. I now have the time to try the things I always wanted to. I bought a Master kit after seeing what it could help me do. So far so good. Quality fit and finish and easy. My hats off to members who have posted their projects, their plans and their advice.
I am looking forward to gaining the experience to become an advice giver, rather than seeker. Keep up the good work and keep sharing!
