My name is Charles, and my wife gave me a Kreg Jig for my birthday/Father's Day. She knew I had been wanting one for a long time, and ultimately found it here at our Lowe's store. I like to make furniture in my spare time for gifts. I have made so many items for my two grown sons that they say if a tornado comes, they hope they have time to get the homemade furniture out safely! I hope someone can help me find the fine screws for small boards. I know they make them because they came with my tool, but no one around my home seems to sell them. Any help will be appreciated.

I get my fine screws at Lowes, but you can also go to www.kregtool.com or to a Woodsmith store.

Hi,
My name is Jim Nikkel and I live in New Baltimore, MI. I'm a novice wood worker and looking to gain some good insight from some of the more experienced members. Hope to post some of my projects in the near future. Looking forward to learning from your group.
My name is Galen and I live in Central Illinois near Springfield. I'm in my fifties and semi-retired. I first saw the Kreg jig on the DIY Network and told myself I need one, so I bought the one for around 39.00. I loved it so much I recently bought the Master System. I was off for three weeks last winter and all I watched was DIY. I decided I want to get into woodworking so I'm still an amateur. Once I figure out how to upload some pictures, I'll show you a work table I made to the Jig.
I'm Bill from the MO. Ozarks close to Fort Leonard Wood. Have been doing woodworking for quite a while, but am now in the process of putting my shop together.

I love the Kreg Jig. My Mom's house burned in January this year and we were able to save many things. One was a blanket chest my brother made for her when he was in High School. It got very wet, and began to fall apart as the joints were glued only. This had survived for 35 years. So she was upset that it was falling apart.

I brought my Kreg Jig to her new house and in about 30 minutes, My son and I were able to completely repair the main box and it fits tighter now than it had for a long time. Without the Jig, it would have been quite another chore to but the Jig made it very easy. Looking forward to participating in the site and the forums.

Best to all

Hi! I am a woodworker,woodburner(pyrographer),artist,photography buff and lover of Navy Submarines.
My name is Bill and I'm from Westfield, NJ. I've been doing simple woodwork for about twenty years, general DIY just about forever. Right now, I'm rebuilding my basement room, flooded last March. I've been using the Kreg jig to piece back the cabinetry that I was able to salvage.
Hello - my name is Terry and I live just north of Houston, Texas. I have been doing woodworking since the late 70's although seriously since the early 80's (at least as often as work would let me).

I have had the Kreg pocket hole jig for about 5 years and find it a really easy way to join frame pieces. The laundry cart I designed (photo attached) is the first project I used it on. And my latest project was a Murphy Bed (photo attached) and I used it on parts of that as well.

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…
