Hi Derek,

Thanks for your reply.  :)  Sounds like a good plan working outside in the nice weather/sun. 

You can post some photos of projects that you have done on your page.  That way people can click on your name and see your projects.  From the Home page, you click on "My Page" and then "Photos".  choose the photos that you would like to place on the community site.  click on "add photo" and you can add a comment.  You can also display it as a "project".  Just follow along the prompts and you can name your project.  It is a very nice way to keep your photos organized.  We all know that once you start building with the Kreg Jig, you add more and more.  If you would like to see projects others are making, click on their name and it will take you to their home page.  I hope this helps you.  I saw that someone else was asking to see your workshop.  It is definitely worth posting on the site.  Good luck.  Let me know if you need any help.   thanks and have a great day!    Lorrie

Derek,

When you're hooked on working wood, there's no end in sight.

My Dad would say, "there's no light at the end of the tunnel", 

my Mothers response was, "the light bulb is probably burned out".

Hi Lorrie

I started with one bench then decided to build another with castors on and it just developed from there. It means I can wheel things outside if its a good day or around the shop. I'm hoping to buy a planer/thicknesser in the Spring so I'll have to make another bench for that. It keeps me busy!

Harold,

A D12 dozer can move some heavy loads.

Yes Ken, a D10T is an awesome little kitten and is capable of moving mountains of material.

Hi Lorrie

It's rained in Scotland most of the winter so no chance to work even with the door open. Luckily we visited our son in Melbourne Australia in December and soaked up some 40+ degree heat. I should receive the Kreg jig tomorrow then I can start some projects. Many thanks for your assistance, I will follow your advice. Cheers. Derek

Long-time jig owner. Use it on almost every project I do. Love it.

Hi My name is Jin and I live in Kansas.  I am a nvuce for woodwork. I have had a interest in wood working.

I hope the Kreg jig can help me a lot.

I look forward to learning from you.

Hi I'm Chris and I live in Wild Wonderful (AND VERY SNOWY and COLD!) West Virginia. I've been here 23 years and still not used to the winters.  Originally from East Tennessee (GO BIG ORANGE1)  just got back into wood working after a 22 year break.  I liked raising my daughter more than woodworking.  She got married in June and so I'm back in the shop.  One of the first tools that I bought was the Kreg Pocket Hole Jig and the first project was a wall desk for my newlywed daughter.  I really love the pocket hole method of joining wood. 

Hello Chris...........welcome !! What part of WV ??

Welcome!

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 1 Reply

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…
