Hey, Y'all

                 I'm Jim, a Florida boy who has lived in Iowa most of his adult life. 40+ year Master mechanic in 5 disciplines.

Only recently got into woodworking when I found pretty much a shopfull of machinery for sale for almost nothing. It all needed work, maintenance, proper setup, cleaning.

Have only built a few things, most of my joy so far has been in the rehab of the machines. Am beginning to wonder if this isn't my niche, rather than the actual working of wood.

I don't seem to have the knack for making precise - looking joinery despite the machines all being set up *perfectly* by the manuals.

Am going to give it a few more tries - have found that I do far better work in hardwoods than in pine, for some reason, and that is encouraging.

Bought my Kreg Jigs in a pawn shop - had seen them used by Steve on Woodworking For Mere Mortals, though I hear that Kreg doesn't sponsor him - they should - he reaches a LOT of people and his projects are within reach of beginners and makes them want to stretch their skills a bit. Useful stuff for average folks.

Anyway, when I've proven the Kreg tools' usefulness to myself, I'll likely buy more - am pretty interested in the circular saw guide and the variety of clamping options.

Later Gators,


I am Dan from Utah and live in Roy I love to build and what can I say, I have saw dust in my viens. I usually think of what I want to build and the plans are in my head so I build to match them.

hello my name is Steve and i'm new to craft building but I've rebuilt my sun room, back room and bathroom but those were all large big rooms. i started out with building a new snake cage for my 9'4" red-tail and basically all I've done were cages because i know i can do them and do them well. I have recently purchased three different kreg tools, kreg k4 master, rip tool and pin hole and I'm going to try and build a canopy bed. I can wait.

Hi i'm Lorenzo, I live in Orange County California. I'm a novice wood worker, i took four years wood shop all through high school but its been awhile since then. I discovered Kreg Tools on Pinterest. Bought the 4 and Rip cut. still wondering what i'm gonna build.  

Steve here in the land down under, Innisfail QLD. In the process of creating a back yard shed to play in. Jack of all trades master of none bought the K5 system next thing ya know here I am looking forward to picking brains when needed.

So hi everyone and thanks Kreg Tools for the site.

Welcome Steve.

Hope you enjoy the site and build something  nice in your Yard shed.

Hi Steve. I'm here on Russell Island near Brizzy. Seems heaps of us have the good old Kreg system.

Thanks all I'm not sure who I'm talking to. I think it's Roger on Russell Island but it might be Robert in Brissy. I thank you both for the welcome. I'll try to get a profile picture up soon.
Cheers Steve

Hello all, Mike here, I consider myself a beginner woodworker. Just finished building a King size bed frame with storage drawers, It came out OK. but I can see all the flaws I made. Next project a couple of night stands. I really like the Kreg jig as it makes joining real easy. Looking forward to helpful hints ands tips.

Hello , Dermot Jones here live in California.

I am a Bee keeper getting back into wood working. looking forward to re-doing some drawers for my wife.

Hello all. My name is Ray and I'm a newbie to woodworking in northern Alabama. A while backed my wife's scrap booking table was ruined in a flood and I cannot see spending $600 when I can make it for a third of the price. (I also get some new tools/toys)

Hi - my name is Brian Mordew and I am a Police pensioner who lives in Yorkshire in the north of England.

I have always enjoyed working with wood and, after a few years helping out with grandchildren, I now intend to get back to wood working on a more regular basis. I have looked at Kreg pocket hole jigs for a few years but have now taken the plunge and purchased a K5 kit, face clamps, and a multi mark tool.

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

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…
