My name is Shaun, and I'm a recovering Woodaholic. Hahaha.

Actually I am a lover of woodwork with untrained experience - I have copied a few pieces of Frank Lloyd Wright work just by eye, but I really need an education in proper tool usage. Right now I am prototyping an invention and bought the Kreg to improve strength and use less brackets.

My name is Steve, I live in the South suburbs of Chicago and I'm 61 years old, I'm 5’9" 200lb, with brown hair and blue eyes. I am now retired but was a construction project manager building multi-million dollar casinos and hotels. I’m an artist who enjoys doing oil paintings, wood carvings, wood art, I design and build custom Queen Anne style furniture, and I am a published writer/author.  I enjoy riding motorcycles, breaking and training horses, scuba and snorkeling, swinging, sailing, biking, and hiking.I have just won first place in three divisions of the Veterans Administration Veteran's National Art Fair. The catagory interesting here would be woodworking.

Hello, My name is Ron, I live in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have many hobbies. Woodworking is one of my favorites. I enjoy working with good tools, creating things that will be here long after I'm gone. Here is one of my latest tool upgrades, it works very well.

Greetings.  Jeff here.  I am in the great state of Georgia.  I  started woodworking years ago when I took shop in the 8th grade.  My Dad taught me how to build things, but I have never had a real shop.  I joined because my daughter saw a mirror at Ikea she wanted.  I looked at it and saw what junk it was.  So I decided this was a good excuse to by a Kreg for the joints because I knew I could build it.  So I did. And I really enjoyed it, so time to make some more stuff!

You wouldn't be Jeff Holton would you ?

I am retired and living in mid-Michigan.  Recently I've been equipping my garage/shop with the basic woodworking tools (used variety mostly)  I'm still looking for a thickness planer and a drill press.  I've been knocking together rustic projects for a long time; and now I am ready to take on some more challenging projects. I enjoy a variety of woodworking programs on the TV and Utube.

Nope, sorry

Hi. I am Choert from South Afrca. Western Gauteng area. Full time teacher - Maths - and a keen woodworker. Doing woodwork for 30+ years. Never used Kreg. Have a business named African Kitchen and Woodworx Center. Will be on pension in 2 years and planning on going full time in woodworking. At a woodwork workshop I was introduced to the Kreg Sysytem. I immediately bought the K5 and the Mini. What a surprise. How I managed without it - I don't know. I have used it nearly everyday now. Thanks for the ideas and plans very use full and interesting.

 

Hello, My name is Glenn and I am retired and am pretty new to woodworking. I live in south Arkansas and have a small shop in my storage building. I have really enjoyed the woodworking a lot more since I started using the Kreg pocket hole systems. I started with the Jr and now I also have the Master jig for pocket holes. I have built a desk/table for my office, a potting table from the plans on the Kreg website and a picnic table with the beverage coolers in the center. I am using the system now to build some gifts for my son and son-in-law, Beanbag games-also known as Cornhole games. My grandfather could build most anything from a picture and I was afraid he had taken that with him to the grave but maybe there is hope. The building is fun and a good stress reliever for me. I love to work from other people's plans and really enjoy those on the Kreg website, just wish there were more to choose from.

I am Andrew Brosowsky, and I live in El Paso TX with my wife. As I prepare to retire from a 29 year life of military service, I have decided to try doing something I really enjoy, working with my hands and crafting things out of wood. This is only possible with the love and support of my lovely wife of 24 years, who believes in me. I started a small company to keep me busy and that it is doing. You can visit my website at www.handyandyswoodcrafts.com. I am learning and growing. Perhaps in 20 years of doing it I may be able to say I know what I am doing. Below is one of my most resent projects.  It is a Aspen Cedar Set of stairs and side cabinets for a customer's hot tub.  Additionally I built him a matching drink cooler with raised panel inserts. They were both done using my Kreg Jig so no screws or nails are showing from the outside.

Yesterday, I received an email wanting my opinion on Kreg adding high end workbenches to their product line and wanted to know before I clicked the link if this is a legitimate survey or some phishing scam. Here's the link I was provided (…Continue

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

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…
