Hi my name is Cheer from Las Vegas NV. I am new into woodworking, started 2006. I love kreg tools and i do most of my projects with pocket holes, actually love all my kreg tools. I was known to be a real geek, loved computer and electronics. My friends came to me when they have problems with computers, but when i found woodworking was more interesting i gave that up. This is my new hobby now, and i hope to learn more from all of you.

Hello all! My name is Brett. I live in Charleston South Carolina and work for an aircraft manufacturer. Im 44 and recently recieved a Kreg joiner from my son for fathers day. I have used it near daily since. I love this tool! I have been building custom audio and video systems along with custom automotive interiors for years now and i can honestly say i wish i had known about this tool 25 years ago. How was i left in the dark about this? Current project is an awesome home for my snake. The vivarium is 8x2x3 foot long, deep and tall respectively and i am also building a cabinet for it to sit on. The frame work is all 2x4's and this thing is rock solid due to the Kreg tool! I only use my phablet so im not sure if i will be able to post pics but it is coming along just great. Nice to meet all of you. I look forward to reading about all the projects,tips and tricks that you all have. Have a great day!

Name - Jack Charity. Originally from Scotland. Been here, Louisiana, 26+ years, after 13 years in Africa where I became very self sufficient by necessity, in car repair and construction, including carpentry ("joinery" in UK, where "carpenters" make furniture and "joiners" build houses),  A/C and electrical work, and plumbing. (I can't believe that the US, well Southern States anyway, have taken so long to realize the advantages of PEX !).
I am a Nurse Practitioner by trade, but have always liked DIY, mainly because we Scots are thrifty (some would say "mean") and I just do not like paying hundreds of dollars for something I can do better myself. 

About to start making some Plantation Shutters, and Pocket Joinery with plugs and paint will be perfect.  
After very little research, it became apparent that the Kreg system had covered all the bases from jigs to screws. No point in inventing the wheel twice.  So now, I too am a Kreggie.

Hello, my name is Deb and I live in Southern AZ. I have never done any work with wood except for many years ago in wood shop class! My husband and I bought our first house 2+ years ago and are starting to put our spin on it.
This past weekend we sweated it out in our garage making me a craft table. Thanks honey! Now I want to work on other projects with my kreg jig 4 and shelf pin jig!

Good night!
My name is Augusto Moraes.
I was born in the state of Bahia / Brazil and currently live in Brasília / Brazil.
'm Inicinado in joinery. I am here to exchange ideas.
A hug to everyone

Hello my name Is Cathy and I live in Alabama I have been looking at the different KREG kits for a while and just purchased the k4ms I am blown away with all of the cool projects, pictures and plans I have seen on this site. I have decided to jump in and try to build the furniture that I need based on the space limitations I have to work with most will have to serve as 2 items such as coffee table and storage for sheets and blankets. Can't wait to get started look forward to meeting anyone that can give me pointers and or help when I get in over my head.

Hi, Im Dave from Greenville, Oh.  Just bought a fixer upper and have several years of carpentry experience.  Have many nex projects to do now and starting with a table for the Flordia Room.  Looking forward to hearing your ideas, techniques, and opinions.

My name is Ron Plain, I am from Aamjiwnaang, a small First Nation community on the Canadian side of the St Clair River beside Michigan.
It's been twenty year or so since I've done any woodwork to speak of and now with the help of a medical disability I find myself with too much time on my hands. I first saw the Kreg Jig on an informer ail five years or so ago. I wanted it then but not enough to search for it. Now, as we are renovation and in need of an island and some cabinets I decided the time to join the Kreg community had come. I've purchased my first Kreg Jig, the Saw Guide and two clamps and today mag the face to my first cabinet, a large pantry. There are issues with tung oil, I need help with this, but other than that I am real pleased with my first effort. (I will post pics when pantry is complete)
So far I'm impressed with the equipment I've purchased and with the quality of members posting and replying. I look forward to interacting with you.

Hello and welcome Warren

Jay and I were just chatting about you,or more correctly the Microjig products.

I will check out your website and contact you.

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…
