  Hello, my name is Tom and I live St. Paul MN. I have been doing wood working out of need. Owning a house you must be able to woodworking and or repairs So I have decided to start doing projects that would be fun or help me organize my tools. The Kreg  tools have peeked my interest, to get started building things that I liked creating. The Kreg joinery has made the completion of projects stronger and easier. I'm looking forword to learning new skills and ideas. I like the mix of pro and amateur skill levels to learn from. I also think tool review is very helpful for the rookies to help us in are decision making on equipment and supply's.

Hello, My name is Paul Steiner and I live in Woodbridge Virginia.  I teach carpentry at a local high school and I also do a lot of woodwork at home. I bought my first Kreg jig about 8 years ago and I have been hooked.  As for skill level I am probably an expert or close to it.  As far as projects I build furniture, lots of shop stuff, lots of cutting boards and lathe work.  I really like this site and forum lots of woodworkers to interact without discussions turning into debates on who has the bigger saw.  

I am a older type lady that likes to work with wood . I also work at Gaurdian  Inc. or now name costume glass solution . I do the wood working in my spare time . love to make things out of wood . I live in Ohio and my name is Violet . I just made a picture frame with the jig and it was really easy to make. Hoping to find plans for my next project.

Gooday,

My name is Bruce and I live in Blackmans Bay which is15 Km, (10 Miles) south of Hobart in Tasmania, Australia.

I am 66 and I retired at the end of September last year. My wife and I sold up our house in Melbourne and we have settled in a slightly cooler, but much more beautiful area of Australia.

During my working life as a Hydraulic Engineer I spent 16 years working for a timber company and was involved in the designing of plant and equipment ranging from the handling of green sawn timber through to air and kiln drying, grading, machining and marketing of our product.

The local "product" being a wide range of Eucalypt and various other hardwood species. During this time I developed an interest in making furniture out of the kiln dried product and found it very satisfying.

I have not had the opportunity to do a great deal over the past 15 years but now that I am retired I am well and truly intending to dive back in.

I recently purchased a Kreg Master System and I am delving into the great unknown, so to speak, I have a Saw Bench, Router Table, Thicknesser and numerous other Power Tools so there isn't too much that I am not willing to have a go at.

Tasmania is somewhat famous for its local species including Sassafras, Myrtle & Huon and Celery Top Pine. The first project is a table out of Celery Top Pine for the new 57" TV and it is progressing quite well.

Enough for now, I am curious to follow the workings of this Community, it seems very interesting and helpfull.

 

My name is Terry and I live in Texas. A new beginner to the woodworking community. Have dabbled in it thru the years, with caring degrees of success/failures. None the less I've always enjoyed the Journeys.

Hi my name is Richard and I live in Southern California. I have little experience in wood working. It seems like a good time to learn, I look forward learning from this site. I hope to be a contributor in the future. I am retiring in three years and thought this might be a fun hobby. Plus I am tired of all of the cheap stuff they sell for high $$ at the store. My first project will be a patio table. I chose this project because if it comes out a little rustic I can clam that was the look I wad going for.

Hello, my name is Randall and I leave in Irvine Ky. I did some woodworking several years ago and I'm looking to get started back. I recently picked up a Kreg Jig and have completed a couple small projects. It is easy to use and provides very strong joints. I look forward to more projects. Thanks

Hi, my name is Tim.  I live in central Wisconsin and currently have a 12x12 shed for my wood working area.

Hi tim ,your love this sight .I too work from a 12X12 SHED but with some careful planning you can have all the gadgets and use them comfortably .

Thank you Michael.  Actually the 12 x 12 shed is bigger than the basement area I had at my old house.  I think that was 8 x 12 with much lower ceilings.

Hofy you need any ideas for maximizing your area drop us a line ,or you can see my little set up on my page ,go steady mick.

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…
