New to the site. Started with my kreg jig when my wife wanted a loft bed built for our son. Used thekreg jig for other around the house projects. Glad to be here.

Ed here. Retired paramedic and very bored. Almost complete with the home remodel and now wish to begin simple wood working. Watching the videos it appears I am lower on the rankings than "rookie". Live in the desert of California near Fresno. We have not seen rain for about 4 years and everyone is going nuts. All materials are jumping in price and almost unreachable for beginners. Always ready to meet new friends, drop me a line...


Is the Kreg jig hard to master? Do you put any glue in the joints or do the screws hold everything? Sounds fun to use though. Funny sidebar - made a loft bed for our son 15 years ago with 16p nails and had to cut it to remove from his room! Using the Kreg jig would have been easier! Good luck.

Joe Here, from Oklahoma City, I am slightly better than a novice, started making some small tables, been using dowels for the most part. So glad I discovered this Pocket hole system.  Really love it so far

Thanks Jim, for the welcome...much appreciated.

I hope to contribute where I can, but am still browsing some of the threads to see what kind of community we've got going on here.

Hello all. I'm Jessy from central MN. Just purchased a k4 master. Mainly for a nightstand bookcase the wife wants. Also for frames for led edge lit signs. I dabbled in woodworking and cnc router and Waterjet. Looking forward to seeing what everyone is making.

Hi, I'm Dale and am from Calgary AB,

 New to the forums and would consider myself a intermediate hobbyist  woodworker. I was a carpenter in my former life lol. I specialized in interior door installations and trim work. These days I try to build useful pieces  of furniture for myself or family members. I'm finding Kreg products to be well built and very handy around the shop and home. I can be creative but still  looking for ideas and inspiration for my next build.

My name is Todd I'm from Myrtle Beach SC and I'm a firefighter I've built outdoor chairs a rocking horse for my daughter and TV cabinet my last project was a set of cornhole boards but my next project I want to design and build a really nice firefighter themed work bench unfortunately I can't build anything for about 4- 5 months, I ruptured my bicep tendon on the job so I'm looking for ideas for my bench and other projects when I get healthy again. I'm also a father of two wonderful young children and have a beautiful wife so most everything I build is mostly for them. Thank you for the opportunity for allowing me to join, I don't have any kreg products yet but definitely want to get some I just would like some advice on which ones would be the best for me. Thank you again.

Hello, my name is Henry from Miami, Fl. New to wood working as a hobby and more... last century I did do a HS wood shop class... ;-)  but since then my focus has been in building computer networks and securing them. Purchased my 1st home and to "do" things around and in the back of the house... got back into this and other things... and I like how kreg and other "currently available" tools lets you do more than what I used in HS.

Hi, my partner Jodi and I are both DIYers who are just really getting into woodworking.  We've used saws and tools our entire lives but neither of us have built furniture or closets, etc before.  We've both done small projects and we love doing them.  We just bought our forever home and we want to build custom closets, a farm table, some benchs and custom cabinet inserts.  

We just went nuts and bought a ton of Kreg tools, including the router table and we are super excited.  We bought the dvd set to watch.  Can't wait to start building our first project, a rustic barn door for our guest room.

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…
